Enter An Exhibit In The Nevada County Fair

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

Want to 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 class for you – and it can be found in the Competition Handbook!

Whether you’ve been entering exhibits for years or this is your first time, the Competition Handbook is the place to start. If you’re not sure what to enter, how about homemade jam or jelly, a cell phone photo, flowers or vegetables from your garden, baked cookies or homebrew? New this year are classes for your favorite homemade muffin and the Farm Fun Planter Pot – paint your dream farm on the outside of a small pot and plant it with your favorite flower or vegetable! There are also classes for honey, wine, quilts, poetry, ugliest cake, produce characters, and fairy gardens. Or, try entering your best salsa, pie or potato salad in one of the daily Special Food Contests. There are more than a thousand classes for children and adults to enter!

There are cash prizes, gift certificates and ribbons to be won, and all those who enter an exhibit in the Fair will receive two free tickets to the Thursday evening performance of the Draft Horse Classic.

It’s easy to enter! Look through the book, pick your favorite classes, and complete the process online at NevadaCountyFair.com or at the Fair Office on McCourtney Road. The deadline for submitting entry forms for still exhibits is July 22.

A copy of the Competition Handbook can be found online at NevadaCountyFair.com. For printed copies, visit the Fairgrounds Office, Chamber of Commerce offices, post offices, county libraries, grocery stores, Ben Franklin, Foothill Mercantile, and other local businesses.

The 2019 Nevada County Fair is August 7 – 11, and the Fair theme is “Farms, Food & Fun!”
