Online Junior Livestock and Ag Mechanics Auction, Treat Street Support and the Fairgrounds
Despite the cancellation of the 2020 Nevada County Fair, we are still here. We are your Nevada County Fairgrounds. We are your Nevada County Fair.
Established in 1884, the Nevada County Fair is one of the county’s oldest community institutions. Adaptability and innovation are part of our history. During WWII, the Fair was canceled for several years, the Draft Horse Classic was displaced during the 49er Fire, and now the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic will be part of our story. We will prove, as we have time and again, that as a Fairgrounds and as a community we are stronger together.
We know the cancellation of the Fair will have a huge impact on the community, including all the hardworking agricultural youth exhibitors, local nonprofit organizations represented on Treat Street, and the Fairgrounds itself.
There are many questions right now, but the one we hear the most often is, “Can I help?” The answer is a resounding “Yes!” Here’s how:
- Bid and buy online at the official Nevada County Fair Junior Livestock and Ag Mechanics Auction August 13 – 15. Go here to learn more.
- Support local organizations represented on Treat Street through direct donations. Visit here for information.
- Donate, advocate, or join the Fairgrounds Foundation in support of the Nevada County Fairgrounds. Visit here to learn more.
