Special Contests Each Day of the Fair

At this year’s Nevada County Fair, there are exciting contests and activities happening each day of the Fair! Here are just a few of the fun contests planned for this year’s Fair.

If you love creating with Duct Tape, then don’t miss the Kids’ Duct Tape Art Challenge. Choose to make a 2D project (flat design or picture on paper) or a 3D project (an item or thing). Some tape will be available for use; however, if your intended project requires specific colors/patterns or supplies, please provide. Happening on Wednesday from 2 -3 pm.

Join the Simply Fun Field Games for some field game fun, including 3-legged and wheelbarrow races, water balloon toss, sack races, and more! Held daily from 4 – 5 pm.

How about a scavenger hunt using your cell phone? Find a partner and join the fun at the Cell Phone Photo Scavenger Hunt on Friday at 4 pm. At check- in, contestant teams will receive a scavenger hunt list, and teams will have 45 minutes to find and photograph with their cell phone as many of the items on the list that they can.

New this year is the Gold Country Yo-Yo Contest, held Saturday at 4 pm. Bring your favorite yo-yo and your best tricks and try your hand at a chance for fun prizes. Registration and waiver forms are here.

Bel Capelli Salon is sponsoring Locks of Love on Saturday from noon – 2 pm. Donate your hair to help provide a hairpiece to financially disadvantaged children suffering from long-term medical hair loss. Bel Capelli Salon stylists will be available to assist with the hair donation process, as well as to cut and style your hair for free.

Love Instagram and love taking photos? Submit a photo or two in the Instagram Contest happening daily. Take a picture or two with your phone while visiting the Nevada County Fair and submit it to Instagram using #simplyfunfairpics. There will be daily winners!
