Fair Competition Handbook Now Available

Book includes all the information you need to enter exhibits in this year’s Fair

The Nevada County Fair’s Competition Handbook, which includes all the information you need to enter exhibits in this year’s Fair, is now available. If you can make it, bake it, grow it or show it, there is a category for you – and it can be found in the Competition Handbook!

Why not showcase a talent, a project, a cooking skill, or a special collection? Try one of the traditional categories like baking cookies or entering a prized photo; or one of the specialty contests designed specifically for this year’s Fair theme of “Under the Big Top,” like creating a circus train car out of a shoe box.  Or, enter one of the specialty food contests for adults – held each day of the Fair. There are also lots of special contests like the Squash Mobile Races, Rain Gutter Regatta, and the Idol Competition. The Competition Handbook is filled with hundreds of categories for children and adults.

Copies of the free handbook are available at the Fairgrounds’ Office, Chamber of Commerce offices, county libraries, Raley’s, or Online Here.  

It’s easy to enter! Look through the book, pick your favorite categories, and follow the simple steps for completing the entry forms. You can even enter on-line.   This year, there won’t be any entry fees for most categories (yes, it’s free!), you can enter on-line or at the Fair office, and there will be some great prizes!  The deadline for submitting paper entry forms and on-line entries is July 19 at 4 pm.

This year’s Competition Handbook also contains information about discounted Fair tickets available now through August 6, discount days at the Fair, and nightly arena events.
