The League of NH Craftsmen is currently hiring staff to support the Annual Craftsmen’s Fair, a nine-day event held from August 7-15 at the Mount Sunapee Resort in Newbury, NH.

Volunteer for the Annual Craftsmen’s Fair!

The annual Craftsmen’s Fair at the Mount Sunapee Resort in Newbury, NH, is our biggest event of the year attracting more than 20,000 visitors, and we need dozens and dozens of volunteers to help it run smoothly and efficiently.

You may choose the Volunteer Opportunities and time slots that most interest you. There are event volunteer jobs to assist with children’s activities, help with demonstrations, hand out surveys, assist in the Membership/Information Tent, and provide breaks for the craftspeople in their booths.  

Volunteers receive Free Admission on the day they volunteer, and a one-day Guest Pass to use another day or pass on to a friend. Best of all, volunteers return home at the end of the day knowing that their efforts contributed to the success of the League’s premiere event.

**Our greatest need at this time is in the afternoon on Tuesday the 10th, Thursday the 12th, and Friday the 13th, as well as the second weekend (the 14th & 15th)- both days, all day.**
It is not too late to join us!!  Those that have already signed up will receive their sign-up letters and badges for admission this week.
