Water Tender Sign-Up:

MN State Fair 2017

Water Bar is going to the Minnesota State Fair! This year, we will be serving water from 14 communities across Minnesota at a Water Bar co-designed and facilitated by our partners at the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA), Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), along with local water utilities and businesses.  

Join us, and share what you know about Minnesota water! Volunteers need not be water resource or drinking water professionals. We all have important stories and knowledge to share, and Water Bar is a place for diverse knowledge and experience to converge.




Volunteers will join staff from the MPCA and MDH at the Water Bar in the Eco Experience building. Shifts are 4-hours in duration. Volunteers will serve free tasting flights of Minnesota tap waters to State Fair visitors, and will also help visitors understand the source of their drinking water, issues of concern and resources for learning more and taking action.

Water Bar will be open every day of the Minnesota State Fair!
