The 2022 Nevada County Fair – themed, “Who Let the Hogs Out?” – will run from August 10 through 14. The fair is an iconic Nevada County event that celebrates so much of what defines this community – agriculture, creativity, and good times with family and friends. The delights that can be found on Treat Street – like the corn dogs at Job’s Daughters’ booth or the soft serve ice cream at the Watt Park Fire Department’s booth – raise significant funding for local non-profit and service organizations. The livestock competitions and ag mechanics projects allow local youth to develop important life skills and build confidence, while the exhibits and dog show create a space to showcase incredible local talent.
I have a very personal connection to the Nevada County Fair. I am a 4H leader, helping my own group of kids to prepare livestock entries for this year’s fair. I’m so proud of how hard they have worked am honored to help them gain experience and make memories that I know will serve them for the rest of their lives. Additionally, I’ve served on the livestock committee for 20 years, I helped put on the livestock auction, and I am a blue-ribbon winner. The fair means so much to me and to this community and I hope to see you there!
Remember to get your advanced sale tickets before August 9 at 5:15 pm!
