The Fairgrounds is hosting a coloring contest for children and adults as part of the Country Christmas Faire. Coloring sheets will be inserted in The Union on November 2, and also available at the Fairgrounds office and here. There are two drawings to choose from, so choose your favorite and color away! It’s free to enter and all entries will be displayed at the Country Christmas Faire on Thanksgiving weekend. Winners in each category will receive 2017 Fair admission tickets. Have fun!
Did you know that last year, more than 7,000 exhibits were entered in the Fair? What a talented community! If you can make it, bake it, grow it, or show it – we have a category for you. Get your paperwork filled out so you can enter an exhibit this year. Go ahead, Nevada County, show off!
