We absolutely love this year’s Fair artwork (thank you, Kathryn Wronski)! By popular request, these fun art posters will be for sale in our Fair souvenir booth (yep, that’s right, we will have a souvenir booth this year!), along with lots of other fun items. Don’t you just love this artwork?! And can you believe the Fair opens a month from tomorrow?
Did you know that last year more than 7,000 exhibits were entered in the Fair? What a talented community! If you can make it, bake it, grow it, or show it – we have a category for you. Get your paperwork filled out so you can enter an exhibit this year. Details can be found here. Go ahead, Nevada County, show off!
Pack the family picnic basket, wave the flag, and join Music in the Mountains for Patriotic Pops on July 3 at the Nevada County Fairgrounds.
