Habitat restoration update: Lions Lake is still closed to the public, but the wildlife are thriving (lots of goslings) and we’re adding water to the lake. We can’t wait to “unveil” the pond in a few weeks. A huge thank you to Nevada County Resource Conservation District for making this project happen and for restoring the lake for our community.
Today and tomorrow (Friday and Saturday) at the Fairgrounds, it’s the Grass Valley Old West Antique Show from 10 am – 5 pm on Friday and from 9 am – 3 pm on Saturday. Visitors to the show will discover one of the richest collections of antiques and artifacts that define the experience of the American West, and will have the opportunity to view and purchase world class merchandise from a legendary list of dealers in all collecting categories.
Save the date for the Nevada County Fair Job Fair on June 5. We’ll be hiring for the 2018 Fair season, and looking for cashiers, ticket monitors, exhibit crew, red shirts, traffic and parking crew, and clean up crew. Job descriptions are available here.
The trees, flowers, and gardens are spectacular this time of year at the Fairgrounds!
Love seeing happy faces (and a future ranger in the making) at the Fair! Ninety four days and counting. Photo by @where.we.walk.
Another busy day at the Fairgrounds!
Effective immediately, the Nevada County Fairgrounds will return to its summer hours, which 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 inner grounds and gates will be open during the week and weekends to walkers and bicyclists, but all must be off the grounds when the gates lock at 4:30 pm. The summer hours only apply to the inner grounds and gate closures; it does not affect the Fairgrounds Administration Office, the RV Park at the Fairgrounds, or any events that are taking place on the grounds during the summer months or on the weekends. Happy walking and cycling!
