Enter An Exhibit in the Fair

The Nevada County Fair’s Competition Handbook, which includes all the information you need to enter exhibits in this year’s Fair, is now available. If you can make it, bake it, grow it or show it, there is a category for you – and it can be found in the Competition Handbook!

Why not showcase a talent, a project, a cooking skill, or a special collection. Try baking cookies, entering a prized photo, creating a produce character, making the Ugliest Decorated Cake, writing a poem, or entering the Pet Look-A-Like photo contest. This year, we have some fun, new categories, including a Spelling Bee, tiny terrariums, creating the best BBQ sauce, an Instagram Contest, Recycled Fan art, an ugly lamp contest, or a painted rock category.

There are also lots of special contests like the Squash Mobile Races, Daily Special Food Contests, and the Newlywed Game. With hundreds of categories available for children and adults – the Competition Handbook has something for everyone.

Copies of the free handbook are available at the Fairgrounds’ Office, Chamber of Commerce offices, post offices, county libraries, Raley’s, SPD, Ben Franklin, Foothill Mercantile, and other local businesses, as well as on-line.

It’s easy to enter! Look through the book, pick your favorite categories, and follow the simple steps for completing the entry forms. You can even enter on-line.   This year, there won’t be any entry fees for most categories (yes, it’s free!), you can enter on-line or at the Fair office, and there will be some great prizes! The deadline for submitting paper entry forms and on-line entries is July 24 at 4 pm.

This year’s Competition Handbook also contains information about discounted Fair tickets available now through August 11, discount days at the Fair, and nightly arena events.

The 2015 “Catch the Fair Bug!” Nevada County Fair is August 12 – 16.
