The 2015 CHUN Capitol Hill People’s Fair needs you!! Consider joining our Volunteer Team and be a part of a wonderful cause.  We encourage you to fill out our online registration form to sign up as a People’s Fair Volunteer!

EVENT VOLUNTEER TEAM MEMBER BENEFITS: During the months of April and May, you will receive the “FairFax” e-blast newsletter with fun facts about the Fair and important information for Event Volunteer Team Members only.

The People’s Fair remains a shining example of urban diversity and neighborhood pride. It is still a community-oriented volunteer event that benefits Capitol Hill nonprofit organizations. Its 300+ volunteers and 200,000+ fair-goers create the magic of the People’s Fair.  The power behind the Fair comes from the wonderful volunteers that make up our Event Volunteer Team.  This truly is a wonderful way to celebrate Denver and to support a great cause.


People’s Fair: You will help keep the People’s Fair running smoothly during Fair Hours.  We will determine onsite what areas we need the most help with at that time, but it could be in any of the following areas:

  • Information/Souvenir Booth: We have many wonderful items to offer fairgoers and need your help selling those items and spreading the spirit of the Fair as well as answering questions and directing fairgoers to different areas of the Fair.
  • Fair Ambassador: In conjunction with the information booths, the Fair Ambassadors are the heart of the Fair.  Smiling faces and happy feet are needed to greet fairgoers, distribute Fair directories and provide general information about the Fair and it’s happenings.  As well as being tasked to help out in area where there is an urgent need.
  • Volunteer Hospitality: Help check in other volunters, serve lunches and keep the volunteer area clean and relaxing.
  • Family Area: Our family area is growing and we need your help to provide our young fairgoers with a safe, fun place to visit while at the Fair.

Green Squad: Join us in our efforts to turn the People’s Fair into a more environmentally sustainable event.  We are looking for volunteers who are passionate about greening and recycling, to guide and educate fairgoers in the correct disposal of their waste, including digging through recycling and trash to fix fairgoer mistakes.  We will provide an educational seminar before each shift for all of our GREEN squad volunteers to better prepare you in spreading the knowledge needed to create a more sustainable world.

Wine Pavilion: One of our more popular volunteer categories, the wine pavilion needs volunteers primarily to pour wine and sell punch cards. The wine pavilion is located near the Studio 1430 Bandstand (featuring jazz, swing, and big band music), and is in a shaded area providing a relaxing atmosphere for our fairgoers. After your shift at the wine pavilion, you won’t want to leave! (Must be 21)

Spirit Team: Get in the People’s Fair spirit and join us as we spice up the fairgrounds with banners, balloons, signs, sidewalk chalk and more!

Site Set-Up/Tear-Down: This is where things really start to happen. Help transform the streets of the Civic Center into the best party of the year! Let the handyman/woman in you out!  As a part of the site set-up team you will be setting up tents, building props, marking booth spaces, lifting and moving heavy objects, setting up tables & chairs, helping exhibitors, etc.
