ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) – The New York State Fair is looking for prospective employees to fill hundreds of temporary positions during the 2022 season, which starts Wednesday, August 24 and goes through Labor Day, Monday, September 5.

Jobs are most needed in guest relations, security, safety and transportation (tram conductors). The Fair is also looking to hire superintendents for the Talent Showcase Youth Talent Show at the Talent Showcase Stage, as well as for the Demonstration Kitchen and arts and crafts, both located in the Art & Home Center.

“Each year, we are grateful to have about 1,600 employees help us throw one of the biggest and most fun events in New York State,” said interim Fair Director Sean Hennessey. “There’s no way that we could showcase the best that our state has to offer without our temporary and summer employees.
