Nevada County Fair Wins in WFA’s Annual Achievement Awards Program

We’re proud to announce that the Nevada County Fair took home 16 awards last week from the annual Western Fairs Association‘s Annual Achievement Awards program. Some of those awards included awards for our collaboration with the Nevada County Sheriff’s Office (Search for the Sheriff Star), the T-Rex Races at the Destruction Derby (another partnership with local law enforcement), our Fun Fair Camp, Family Farm (a partnership with the Nevada County Farm Bureau Foundation), our “Farms, Food & Fun!” theme development, the yard games in Magic Forest, and two of our photos. A huge thank you to our community and businesses for their continued support and partnerships with the Fairgrounds. Without you, none of these awards would be possible!

We’re so thankful for our community partnerships, and always proud to represent our community!
