Enter An Exhibit In The Nevada County Fair

Competition Handbook now available and includes all the information needed to enter exhibits in the Fair

Start the Fair season now by entering an exhibit in the Nevada County Fair! Did you know that more than 7,000 exhibits were created by our talented community and featured at last year’s 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!

How about showcasing a child’s artwork from school, baking cupcakes or cookies, entering a photo, creating a produce character, making the Ugliest Decorated Cake, writing a poem, entering the Pet Look-A-Like photo contest, entering one of the daily special food contests, or showcasing fresh fruits or vegetables from your garden? This year, we have some fun new categories like a cell phone photo contest, Minecraft, Zentangle art, homebrew, kite decorating, and the California State Parks youth photo contest. With hundreds of categories available for children and adults, the Competition Handbook has something for everyone.

It’s easy to enter! Look through the book, pick your favorite categories, and follow the steps for completing the entry forms. You can even enter online here.  Most categories are free to enter, and you can enter online or at the Fair office. The deadline for submitting entry forms and online entries forms for still exhibits is July 23. Entries are limited to Nevada County residents only.

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 here.   

The 2018 Nevada County Fair is August 8 – 12, and the Fair theme is “Bushels of Fun!” For more information, call (530) 273-6217.
