Free Entry & Extra Ticket for Volunteering

Eco Learning Lab Container

It's almost that time of year again. At the San Diego County Fair, Solana Center will be educating people on living sustainably every day that the Fair is open. If you'd like to volunteer, we could use your help at a booth, assisting in fun Fair activities, or being a general Solana Center representative to guide the onslaught of Fair-goers to our beautiful, education-packed displays. ​Our interactive educational booth will be in the Infield Farm at the Del Mar Fairgrounds.

WE VALUE YOUR TIME! In return for your volunteer services, you will get into the San Diego County Fair for free and receive an additional free ticket for each day you volunteer. ​​

This year's theme is Where the West is Fun. We encourage you to wear Fair-themed accessories like a cowboy/cowgirl hat or boots, a vest, or anything else that is Western!

At the San Diego County Fair, you will help out by:

  • Setting up Solana Center's booth and Eco Container materials (morning shift)
  • Sharing information about Solana Center, composting, gardening, and recycling with visitors
  • Helping children plant seeds to take home!
  • Putting away booth materials (afternoon shift)
