2015 Fair PosterCatch the Fair Bug

Congratulations to Juli Marks of Grass Valley for submitting the winning artwork to represent the Nevada County Fair’s 2015 theme – “Catch the Fair Bug!” Juli’s artwork, which is featured on this year’s poster, will also be featured throughout our advertising campaign and used throughout the Fair in the buildings, on gate signs, and on other promotional pieces. The artwork was chosen from numerous entries submitted by community members. Debbie Marshall of Cedar Ridge submitted the theme of “Catch the Fair Bug!” as part of our community contest in December to determine the theme for this year’s Fair.
