Introducing the 2018 Nevada County Fair Poster

We’re excited to introduce the 2018 Nevada County Fair poster! This fun piece of artwork was created for the Fair by talented local artist Kathryn Wronski, who is well-known for her oil paintings that are filled with bright colors and whimsical features. Isn’t it fun?!  Thank you, Kathryn, and let’s get ready for “Bushels of Fun!” at the Fair.
