What fun it was to surprise Bill Mitchell at Thursday’s Fairgrounds staff meeting with the news that he has been selected by the Nevada County Fairgrounds Board as a 2019 Nevada County Fair Hall of Fame inductee. The honor is given to those who have provided long-term service and dedication to the Nevada County Fairgrounds. Bill, whom we fondly refer to as “Mitchell,” has provided countless hours (years!) of volunteer service to the Fairgrounds and we are a better place because of him. We’ll be sharing more about Bill later and the many reasons he was chosen; but right now we just want to say – congratulations, Mitchell!
The Nevada County Fair is hiring! If you’re interested in working during the 2019 Fair season and being part of the Fair team, plan to attend the Nevada County Fair Job Fair on Tuesday, June 11, from 3 – 6 pm in Main Street Center at Gate 1 at the Fairgrounds.
Fair staff will be at the event accepting applications and conducting interviews from 3 – 6 pm for all departments. Jobs available include gate cashiers, ticket monitors, “red shirt” patrols, exhibit crew, ice crew, clean-up crew, and parking crew.
Working during the Fair is fast-paced, rewarding and lots of fun! A list of job descriptions and the application are posted here. Bring a completed application with you to the Job Fair. Applications will be available onsite if needed.
