Be an Awards Sponsor for the Still Exhibit and Livestock Program at the Nevada County Fair

In anticipation of the 2021 Nevada County Fair, we are rolling out a brand new way to sign up as an awards sponsor for the still exhibits and livestock programs. These digital forms will allow you to see every award that is available to be sponsored, including descriptions of the awards and prices. We’ve added some new awards this year and removed others, but rest assured that there are plenty of opportunities to sponsor. You can sponsor awards under your own name, a company or organization, or in honor or recognition of a friend or loved one.
 
There are two forms- one for livestock, horse, and small animals and the other for still exhibits and Ag Mechanics.
 
 
The generosity of our community makes it possible to have such an outstanding awards program. Without you, it simply wouldn’t be possible. If you have any questions or need assistance making your selections, please call the Fairgrounds at (530) 273-6217.
