Treat Street Fun Facts: Did you know that the Meadowlarks 4H booth sells 3,000 pasties during the five days of Fair? That’s a lot of pasties! Funds raised by this club during the Fair help with the club’s projects and supplies, helps pay for kids to go to 4H camp, and supports community service projects. The year, The Pasty Shack, a long-time fixture in Sacramento (and featured in the movie “Lady Bird”) will be Meadowlarks pasty provider so Fair-goers can get their pasties on Treat Street! Thank you, Meadowlarks 4H, for all your hard work and for serving our youth!
Family Friday! New daily specials at the Nevada County Fair! Friday of the Fair (August 10) is now Family Friday and that means FREE parking until noon and one FREE carnival ride coupon to the first 500 guests! Yep, we’re pretty excited about that, too! Keep watching as we continue to introduce our new daily specials for this year’s Fair, August 8 – 12. Wait until you see Thursday’s special! 🙂
Another day of hard work at the Nevada County Fairgrounds by our friends at PRIDE Industries Foundation! This group spent the morning cleaning golf carts, and we’ve had teams from PRIDE here every week cleaning ticket booths and buildings, picking up trash, and helping us in the office. We are so very thankful for their hard work and smiles. Thank you, team, for helping us keep our community grounds beautiful! If you are visiting the Fairgrounds and see the PRIDE teams working, please give them a huge thank you!
Does your group have a skill they’d like to demonstrate to Fair-goers? Want to do a martial arts demonstration, a cheerleading demonstration, or show off your dancing skills? We’re currently accepting applications for community acts and demonstrations to perform at the 2018 Nevada County Fair. Applications are available here.
Would you or your business like to sponsor an award or two in the Fair’s exhibit awards program and recognize exhibitors for their hard work and creativity? The Nevada County Fair’s popular exhibit program celebrates the many talents of our county and fills the buildings with thousands of creations and the barns with hundreds of animals for Fair-goers to enjoy each year. By supporting this program as a sponsor, you are encouraging exhibitors while also supporting a community tradition. Details can be found here or you can email us at .
Who’s counting the days until Fair? We are! 196 days!!
We’re excited for the 3rd Annual Farm Day, happening on Thursday at the Fairgrounds! We’ll have almost 700 kids from area schools on the grounds to learn about agriculture in Nevada County, meet lots of animals, and, of course, meet some draft horses. Thank you to the Nevada County Resource Conservation District, the Nevada County Farm Bureau, and Bear River & Nevada Union FFA students for making this day possible!
…and just like that, it’s over. Thank you to our dedicated Fair team, volunteers, sponsors, service organizations, Fair-goers, and our amazing community for making the 2017 Fair a success. Let the planning for the 2018 Fair begin. Photo by Lenkaland Photography.
