Effective immediately the Nevada County Fairgrounds will return to its winter hours. This change in hours means that the Fairgrounds’ gates will remain open during the week to walkers and bicyclists, but will close each weekday at 4:30 pm and will be closed on weekends.  The winter hours do not affect the Main Office, which is open during its normal business hours of Monday through Friday from 8 am to 5 pm.  Additionally, the RV Park at the Fairgrounds will remain open, and the grounds will be open for any events that take place during the winter months. The Fairgrounds will return to its summer hours beginning May 1.
