Marquette County Fair Information

The Marquette County 4-H Council holds an Ice Cream fundraiser each year at the Marquette County Fair.  Funds raised support the youth and adult volunteers who participate in the Michigan 4-H Youth Development program.  4-H members, parents, club leaders, and Council members are encouraged to sign-up to volunteer for a shift in the 4-H Ice Cream booth (located inside the 4-H Building at the Fairgrounds).  A manager will be on-site during each shift to provide orientation and supervision. 


Thursday (August 11) – Sunday (August 14)
Fair is open to the public.  Volunteers will help take orders, run the cash register, scoop ice cream and keep the booth clean.

To sign-up for a shift please look at the available spots on the sign up sheet below and email Liana your preferred time at  deisenro@anr.msu.edu or call 906-315-2663 to reach her directly.
