IGIA at the Illinois State Fair

ICN Pro Fair

Each year, we maintain a presence at the Illinois State Fair in Conservation World. Over 30,000 people pass through the fair gates each day of the 11-day event. Conversation World provides fairgoers with family-friendly entertainment in a corner of the grounds that reflects the diversity of outdoor recreation and the vast natural resources of Illinois.

Having an IGIA-branded display offers a unique opportunity to impact consumers by answering their plant questions and allowing them to interact freely with certified professionals from our industry. Without your expertise, this event will not be possible. We need two ICN Pro volunteers during each shift, August 11-20. We will ask you to meet and greet visitors and serve as ambassadors for IGIA and our industry. 

ICN Pros will earn 1 CEU for each 4-hour shift worked. Earning CEUs is a critical part of your annual recertification process. Shifts will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. You will receive free admittance, free parking, and a Plant Something volunteer t-shirt for the day that you commit to work this event.
