Cioppino and Pasta Feed: March 7, 2020

Join us for the tenth annual All-You-Can-Eat Cioppino and Pasta Feed on March 7 in Ponderosa Hall at the Nevada County Fairgrounds. Prepared by the Foothill Lions Club, dinner includes antipasto, all-you-can-eat Cioppino and pasta, salad and garlic bread.  A no-host bar will be available, and there will be a silent dessert auction and a live auction. 

Tickets are $45 per person. If you’d like to purchase a table for 8, it is $450 and includes two bottles of wine.   Tickets are available by visiting the Nevada County Fairgrounds on McCourtney Road, calling the Fair Office at (530) 273-6217, or downloading the ticket form below.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Nevada County Fairgrounds Foundation and its mission of supporting and improving the community’s Fairgrounds, and supporting youth in agriculture.
