Winter Hours

Effective immediately, the Nevada County Fairgrounds will return to its winter hours. This change in hours means that the Fairgrounds inner grounds and gates will be locked at 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday, and closed on weekends. The inner grounds and gates will remain open during the week to walkers and bicyclists, but all must be off the grounds before the gates lock at 4:30 pm. The winter hours only affect the inner grounds and gate closures; it does not affect the Main Office, the RV Park at the Fairgrounds, or any events that are taking place on the grounds during the winter months or on the weekends. The Fairgrounds will return to its summer hours beginning May 1.
