Become a Foundation Member

Become a Nevada County Fairgrounds Foundation member today! In the future, a variety of membership packages will be available, and many can be tailored to create the Fair or Draft Horse Classic package of your choice. Each membership gives you “credits” and these credits can be used towards the purchase of tickets of your choice, including carnival wristbands, parking, additional admission tickets, arena performances, or Draft Horse Classic tickets.*

*Currently, as a result of the cancellation of events on the Fairgrounds, membership package benefits are not available (but will be once events open up again). However, it’s easy to join and your membership supports your community Fairgrounds!  

To become a Foundation member:
Option 1: Foundation Membership Application – Electronic Form
(complete the form and submit payment electronically)
Option 2: Foundation Membership Application – Mail In
(print out and mail in)

To donate directly to the Fairgrounds Foundation:
Donate to the Foundation (complete the form electronically)
If you prefer to mail in a donation instead of doing it electronically, use this form. 


  • Once your membership is purchased, the Foundation will keep track of your credits and when the Fairgrounds is once again open to the public, we’ll contact you about using your credits to choose your favorite benefits.
  • Credit can be used towards the purchase of tickets of your choice, including carnival wristbands, parking, additional admission tickets, and arena performances at the Nevada County Fair; or tickets to the Draft Horse Classic.
  • Credits can be transferred from year to year, however, may not be accumulated more than three years and cannot be exchanged for cash.
  • All memberships must be renewed annually.

All donations and contributions are tax deductible in accordance with state and federal regulations: Tax ID # 20-3558740
