Love this photo of the Tall Pines Nursery School kiddos going on a worm hunt at the Nevada County Fairgrounds. What a beautiful playground they have!
Don’t forget to enter the Country Christmas Faire coloring contest. There are categories for adults and children, and winners in each category will receive 2017 Fair admission tickets.

It’s free to enter and all entries will be displayed at the Country Christmas Faire.
The Nevada County Fairgrounds has two vacant Treat Street booths, and is seeking two nonprofit groups to operate the booths at the 2017 Nevada County Fair, August 9 – 13. Applicants must be a Nevada County-based nonprofit group. One booth is located on Treat Street, and the other booth is located on “South Treat Street.” Both booths are equipped with multiple counter surfaces and a double basin sink. The group must provide necessary equipment and the staffing during operating hours of the 2017 Nevada County Fair, from 10 am to 11 pm each day. Food selections for the booths must be pre-approved by the Nevada County Fair.
The Nevada County Fair’s Treat Street consists of community non-profit service organizations. There are currently more than 30 organizations represented on Treat Street, including 4H, the Methodist Church, Jobs Daughters, Lions Clubs, Watt Park Fire Department, Girl Scouts, and Rotary. Last year, almost $900,000 was generated on Treat Street. Proceeds raised on Treat Street allow local non-profit organizations to provide vital services to our community.
Interested nonprofit organizations may schedule a tour of either booth so they can determine equipment needed and review any repairs needed. The deadline to complete an application is December 9, 2016. For an application or to tour a booth, call the Fairgrounds Office at 273-6217 or email .
Happy Veteran’s Day! Thank you to all who have served, who are currently serving, and who have dedicated themselves to future service. Thank you for all that you do for our nation!
The Nevada County Fairgrounds is offering a coloring contest for children and adults as part of the annual Country Christmas Faire, November 25 – 27, at the Nevada County Fairgrounds.
Coloring sheets were inserted in The Union Newspaper on November 2, and are also available at the Fairgrounds office on McCourtney Road, or can be downloaded here.
There are two drawings to choose from, and it’s free to enter the coloring contest. Simply choose your favorite drawing of the two, fill out the entry from, complete the drawing, and return it to the Nevada County Fairgrounds – either by mail or in person – before November 18. The coloring contest is open to Nevada County residents only, and limited to one entry per person.
The coloring contest is divided into seven categories: five years old and under, 6 – 8 years, 9 – 12 years, 13 – 17 years, 18 – 64 years, 65 and over, and special needs. First, second and third place prizes will be awarded for each category. First place winners will receive a 2017 Fair package; second place winners will receive two 2017 Fair admission tickets; and third place winners will receive one 2017 Fair admission ticket.
All entries will be on display in Ponderosa Hall with the Gingerbread House display during the Country Christmas Faire. Winners will be announced with ribbons on opening day of the Country Christmas Faire.
