Summer Hours at the Fairgrounds

Effective immediately, the Nevada County Fairgrounds will return to its summer hours. This change in hours means that the Fairgrounds’ inner-grounds and gates will be open during the week and on the weekends from 8 am to 4:30 pm.  The public restrooms will also be closed each day at 4:30 pm.

The summer hours only apply to the inner-grounds and gate closures; it does not affect the Fairgrounds’ Administration Office, which is open during its normal business hours of Monday through Friday from 8 am to 5 pm.  Additionally, the RV Park at the Fairgrounds will remain open during its normal business hours – 9 am to noon and 1 to 6 pm – and the gates and inner-grounds will remain open for any events that are taking place on the grounds during the summer months.

Happy walking and cycling!
