Nevada County Fair Competition Handbook Now Available
Book includes all the information you need to enter exhibits in this 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!

Why not showcase a child’s artwork project from school, a cooking skill, or a special collection? Try baking cookies, entering a photo, creating a produce character, making the Ugliest Decorated Cake, writing a poem, entering the Pet Look-A-Like photo contest, or making a bookmark. This year, we have some new categories like blue jean art, creative yard art, toothpick art, or creating a string garden (Kokedama).

There are also lots of special contests like the Squash Mobile Races, Daily Special Food Contests, and an Instagram contest. 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 here.

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 here.   Most categories are free to enter, and you can enter on-line or at the Fair office. The deadline for submitting entry forms and on-line entries is July 22 at 4 pm.

The 2016 “Kick It Up!” Nevada County Fair is August 10 -14.  For more information, the Fair website or call (530) 273-6217.
