The Madera District Fair’s Junior Fair Board was created to provide young adults with an opportunity to develop leadership and public relation skills, perform community service, and learn about the business and operations of Madera District Fair. Our young community is the future leadership for California Fairs and youth involvement is an important investment.
The 2017 Junior Fair Board is happy to offer two courses to potential members based on time commitment, responsibility and member desires. If you would like an in depth membership role and are able to commit to the term, perhaps the Junior Fair BOARD course is for you. If your schedule does not allow for a full term commitment, your participation as a SERVICE member may be most suitable.

Potential Junior Fair members must be high school age students and enrolled in a high school or equivalent program at the time they begin their service as a Junior Fair Board or Service Member.
