In anticipation of the 2021 Nevada County Fair, we are rolling out a brand new way to sign up as an awards sponsor for the still exhibits and livestock programs. These digital forms will allow you to see every award that is available to be sponsored, including descriptions of the awards and prices. We’ve added some new awards this year and removed others, but rest assured that there are plenty of opportunities to sponsor. You can sponsor awards under your own name, a company or organization, or in honor or recognition of a friend or loved one.
 
There are two forms- one for livestock, horse, and small animals and the other for still exhibits and Ag Mechanics.
 
 
The generosity of our community makes it possible to have such an outstanding awards program. Without you, it simply wouldn’t be possible. If you have any questions or need assistance making your selections, please call the Fairgrounds at (530) 273-6217.

Higgins Diggins Lions Club Donates $1,000 and Challenges Other Service Clubs

Recently the Higgins Diggins Lions Club donated $1,000 to the Nevada County Fairgrounds Foundation.  In presenting the check, Higgins Diggins Lions Club President Laura Barhydt expressed the club’s passion and concern for the ongoing viability of the Nevada County Fairgrounds given the pandemic’s huge negative impact on the community’s Fairgrounds. President Barhydt, along with members of the club, is challenging other Nevada County non-profit service clubs to step up to matching Higgins Diggins’ donation to help the Nevada County Fairgrounds.

Higgins Diggins Lions Club has a long record of service in the community going back more than forty years.  The Club’s major sources of revenue are the rental of the Higgins Lions Community Center, the annual Crab & Shrimp Feed, See’s candy sales during Christmas and Valentine’s day and, most recently, producing Drive Thru dinners.  The club has a strong membership that give freely of their time and resources to provide for the betterment of the community. 

The Nevada County Fairgrounds Foundation is focused upon building a better Nevada County Fairgrounds through fundraising and contributions to the Fairgrounds.  Currently the major focus of the Foundation is to simply keep the Fairgrounds financially viable so that it will once again thrive as a great community asset.  The directors of the Foundation expressed their sincere appreciation for Higgins Diggins generous donation and expressed hopes that other service clubs will take up President Barhydt and the Higgins Diggins Lions Club’s challenge.
