Treat Street Fun Facts: The Nevada City Chamber of Commerce redid its Treat Street booth last year and it’s beautiful! Did you know that they serve approximately 3,000 burgers during the Fair and that it takes about 140 volunteers to get through the Fair? They also serve delicious root beer floats! The money made at the booth during the Fair goes to help fund community events like Summer Nights and Victorian Christmas. Thank you, Nevada City Chamber, for all you do for our community!
Treat Street Fun Facts: In the early 1970’s a couple from Nevada City United Methodist Church were traveling in Germany when they came upon a local festival selling bratwurst. They so enjoyed them that they brought the idea back to the church to sell them at the county fair. The church got approval from the Fair, moved into their booth (still at its original location), and today they are one of the oldest vendors on Treat Street! Each year they sell about 3,500 brats and proceeds contribute to the church, which prides itself in offering support all year long to local and global causes. Thank you to all the volunteers for serving delicious brats during the Fair!
Are you a Treat Street fanatic?! We are! This super cool image will be on t-shirts and available at the new souvenir booths at this year’s Fair. There will also be other fun t-shirts, mugs, hats, magnets, tote bags and lots of fun Fair swag for Fair-goers!

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!
Spring has sprung on Treat Street. Happy Tuesday!
