Become the Next Nonprofit on Treat Street

We are now accepting applications from interested nonprofit organizations based in Nevada County who would like to operate a Treat Street booth during the 2024 Nevada County Fair.  If selected, applicants will need to submit proof of their 501(c)(3) status.  It is preferred that the selected nonprofit continues to sell tacos, as they have been a crowd favorite, however, we are accepting other unique ideas.  Some of the current booth equipment will be available to purchase from the Nevada City Lions Club. 

Interested nonprofits will be required to operate the booth all five days of the Fair from 10:00 am – 11:00 pm each day.  If desired, the booth may also be opened during the annual Draft Horse Classic in September.
