Arena Events At The 2015 Nevada County Fair

This year’s Nevada County Fair features a full line up of excitement and loud, crazy fun in the arena each night. Wednesday and Thursday night features the Flying U Extreme Rodeo, Friday and Saturday night features Tuff Trucks and Monsters Trucks, and Sunday night is the return of Rotary’s Destruction Derby.

The Flying U Extreme Rodeo, produced by Cotton Rosser and Flying U Rodeo, returns to the arena on Wednesday and Thursday night with cowboys, bull riding, wild horse races, motorcycle riding, and a parachutist. Mutton Bustin, where young cowboys and cowgirls get the chance to hop on a trusty sheep and head for the thrill of their young lives, is scheduled during the event on both nights. If you have children interested in participating in Mutton Bustin, please visit the Fair Office. New this year, on both nights, will be a Coin Dig. Sponsored by A to Z Supply, the Coin Dig, features 100 gold coins buried in the arena, and children 10 years and younger in the audience will be invited down to the arena to dig for the coins. The cost to attend the Flying U Extreme Rodeo is $6.

On Thursday and Friday night, it’s Tuff Trucks and Monster Trucks, produced by S. Miller Paving, Inc. Loud trucks, racing, and car jumping make up for this fun evening. Ticket price also includes a Meet and Greet from 5:30 – 6:30 on both nights, so you can go visit the arena floor and meet the drivers. The cost to attend the Tuff Truck and Monster Truck show is $12 for adults, and $8 for kids 12 and under.

On Sunday, it’s the crowd-favorite Destruction Derby. The popular Derby is 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. Watch as drivers put their cars to the ultimate test and crash, smash, and ram other vehicles while trying to keep their own vehicle running! It’s demolition at its best. Tickets are $15 for adults and $8 for kids 12 and under.

All arena events start at 7 pm. For tickets to the Fair’s arena events, visit here.
