Join our Board of Directors

Are you a long-time fan of the Irish Fair or veteran volunteer? Interested in getting involved with the Fair at a deeper level?  Want to be part of a passionate team dedicated to promoting Irish culture in fun and engaging ways? The rish Fair is seeking to evolve and grow in a way that reflects a modern, global Ireland with an increasingly diverse population. We are looking to expand our Board of Directors and are actively seeking candidates with governance, marketing, fundraising, grant-writing, strategic partnership, and sponsorship experience.  We welcome anyone who wants to roll up their sleeves and work with us.

As background, Irish Fair of Minnesota is a non-profit, tax exempt organization with a specific mission to promote and operate a cultural and educational festival on an annual basis.  Our purpose is intended to benefit Irish cultural and other immigrant cultural charitable organizations. 

Our board meets monthly (4th Tuesday) and board members should plan to be involved in at least one standing committee. Our Board is a working board, so the time commitment may vary beyond monthly Board meetings.  We do ask our Board to be committed (all hands on deck) the second weekend in August (as best they can) for the Fair to provide leadership and support to the volunteers and area managers.
