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!
We’re excited to introduce the 2018 Nevada County Fair poster! This fun piece of artwork was created for the Fair by talented local artist Kathryn Wronski, who is well-known for her oil paintings that are filled with bright colors and whimsical features. Isn’t it fun?! Thank you, Kathryn, and let’s get ready for “Bushels of Fun!” at the Fair.
Thank you to Andy Wirth, CEO of Squaw Valley Ski Holdings, for serving as the guest speaker at tonight’s Nevada County Fairgrounds Foundation Speaker Series. As part of the series, Andy spent time with local high school students and shared leadership and business advice, including the importance of gratitude, The Law of the Ranch (you reap what you sow), caring for our land, and serving our communities (be a volunteer!). Thank you, Andy, for your time, and we’ll see you on the slopes!

Thank you Nevada Union FFA for inviting Rea Callender, CEO of the Fairgrounds, to speak at last night’s Greenhand/FFA Chapter Degree ceremony. Congratulations to all the students who received their degrees, and thank you all for your hard work, for being excellent role models in your school, and for serving our community as representatives of youth in agriculture. You make us proud!
Congratulations to Sam Patton and Bekah Nunez, recipients of this year’s Nevada County Fairgrounds Foundation Scholarships. The Foundation scholarship is awarded to local high school students who exhibit in the Fair, attend the Fairgrounds Foundation’s speaker series, and write an essay explaining what they learned from the speaker series. Sam graduated this year, is planning on attending Sierra College as an Agribusiness major, and exhibited cattle and vegetables at the 2016 Fair. Bekah also graduated this year, will attend CSU Chico (majoring in animal science), and exhibited a steer at the 2016 Fair. Both attended every speaker series event. Congratulations, Sam and Bekah!!
