Destruction Derby Community Meeting

It’s back – the Destruction Derby at the Nevada County Fair!  This year’s Derby, held on Sunday of the Nevada County Fair, will be locally produced by five of Nevada County’s Rotary Clubs – The Rotary Club of Nevada City, Rotary Club of Nevada County South, 49er Breakfast Rotary of Nevada City, Penn Valley Rotary, and Rotary Club of Grass Valley.

To prepare for this exciting Fair-time event, Rotary has scheduled a planning meeting for the community – for potential drivers, sponsors and derby enthusiasts – on Thursday, May 8, from 6 – 7 pm at Ponderosa Hall at the Nevada County Fairgrounds.

This is a chance to get together to discuss the Derby, find out how to be a driver in this event, learn more about this year’s plans for the Derby, and give feedback on how to make this one of the best events of the Nevada County Fair.  Additionally, registration forms will be available for drivers interested in entering the Derby.

“The Nevada County Fairgrounds is extremely pleased that the Rotarians, who are leaders in our community, are taking on the production of the Destruction Derby at the Fair,” said Sandy Woods, CEO of the Nevada County Fairgrounds. “This event will be a truly locally produced event, and we are excited to be able to offer this entertainment to our community.”

For additional information regarding the Derby, contact Allison Swartzendruber, co-chair of Rotary’s Nevada County Destruction Derby at (530) 277-6229 or .

The Destruction Derby will be held on Sunday, August 10, at 7 pm. Tickets for the Fair and the arena events will go on sale on June 2.
