Look what begins running this week on the back of Gold Country Stage! It’s the Country Christmas Faire, happening Thanksgiving weekend at the Nevada County Fairgrounds. This is definitely one of our favorite holiday events.
Country Christmas Faire – November 27, 28, 29
Mark your calendar for the 25th annual Country Christmas Faire at the Nevada County Fairgrounds in Grass Valley on November 27, 28 and 29.
Rated as one of the top handcrafted shows in Northern California, this year’s Country Christmas Faire will feature unique gifts and crafts from more than 100 top artisans.
Five exhibit buildings will be filled over the Thanksgiving weekend, giving shoppers a chance to start their Christmas shopping with quality hand-made gifts.
Visitors to the Faire will enjoy strolling live entertainment, festival foods, the magical Gingerbread House exhibit, and a community bon-fire. Wagon rides around the Fairgrounds will be offered; and Victorian singers, the bell ringing RiverBells, and the Sierra Symphony quartet will perform throughout the event. Additionally, Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus will be in The Chapel to greet children and listen to their Christmas wishes. A photographer will be available to capture the special moment with Santa.
Back by popular demand, the Northern Mines Girl Scouts will offer free babysitting so parents can drop off their children while they enjoy holiday shopping. Errand elves will also be available to assist you throughout the event.
