Country Christmas Faire
2020 Country Christmas Faire Canceled
Due to continued COVID-19 restrictions on mass gatherings, the Nevada County Fairgrounds Board of Directors voted Tuesday evening to cancel the 2020 Country Christmas Faire. The Board made the decision to cancel the event after reviewing the California Department of Public Health’s most recent guidelines for gatherings in the state. We will miss our Country Christmas Faire exhibitors and attendees, but we look forward to safely welcoming back all to the Country Christmas Faire in 2021.
