COUNTRY CHRISTMAS FAIRE RESULTS
Gingerbread House Competition Results and Canned Food Drive Results

A successful canned food drive, more than 120 vendors, and 42 gingerbread houses built made the 29th Annual Country Christmas Faire at the Nevada County Fairgrounds a success.
The 11th Annual Gingerbread House Competition was once again a crowd favorite, with 42 entries received. Of those entries, the Best of Show winner was Cathy Rodgers of Browns Valley, and the People’s Choice Award went to Joanne Perilman and Crew of Grass Valley. The Best of Show is chosen by the judges, and the People’s Choice is selected through ballots cast by individuals who attend the Craft Faire.
First place winners in the traditional categories include Bailey Ingalis and Jillian Beaver (age 5 & under); Willow West, Hunter Casteel, and Finn Becker (age 6-8); Owen Strolle, Nate Becker, and Molly Becker (age 9-12); Jenna Deutschman (age 13-17); Tina Ennis (age 18 -64); Joan Morton (age 65 & over); Keith Wemple (special needs); Girl Scout Troup 1024, The Awesomes, Sunday School Class, S. Lemons 3rd Grade Class, GVSD 4th Grade, GVSD 2nd Grade, and 1st Grade Clear Creek School (group – children); Yvonne Read (family); and Andres Price (Adult/Group – ages 18 and over).

The first place winner in the non-traditional categories is Cathy Rodgers (adult/group – ages 18 and over).

With the help of Grass Valley Elks, Sunday’s canned food drive collected enough food to feed 30 Nevada County families during the Christmas season.  

The names of all the Gingerbread House Competition winners can be found on the Fairgrounds’ website at www.NevadaCountyFair.com. The 2014 Country Christmas Faire is planned for Thanksgiving weekend, November 28, 29, and 30.
