IT’S TIME FOR THE NEVADA COUNTY FAIR! Is it “fair” to say YIPPEE? If you are just cruising my blog and have not yet been to Nevada County in the summertime, you really need to keep reading. So everyone has a county fair nearby, right? No fair you have ever been to is like ours. Yes, I can and do brag about the Nevada County Fair. Why? Because it is ADORABLE, fun, and is, in my opinion, the best FAIR around the state! For a number of reasons, this fair tops them all.
First, our fair is in the pines. It is on flat surface so getting around it is really easy for everyone. There is plenty of nearby parking (though sometimes the parking is on sawdust so makes it hard for handicapped). There IS handicapped parking, though, and it too is in the PINES.
It is HOT. OK so you can count on the Fair Week is one of the hottest of the year. We just deal with it. There is a really nice Main Building (where you can find me on Thursday from 4:00 to 7:00) that is totally air conditioned and remains very cool. But plan on HOT. Aside from that it is the most beautiful, green, and fun fair! It is NOT too big. There are amazing barns filled with very specially treated animals of all kinds (after all that is the basis for our fair, the animals 4-H and FAA) as well as tons of wonderful exhibits of food and crafts that will amaze anyone.
The best part of the fair for me is to see all our friends, their kids growing up and find out what everyone is up to! And if you want to EAT? Well, you cannot BEAT our Treat Street. It is amazing, wonderful, and you can get your fix of all the latest greatest fried goodies.
So come out and see us this week. The Fair opens for business on Wednesday August 8, 2018. Get there early ( I think it is 10:00 AM to 11:00 PM) so you can enjoy the fun zone before it heats up, and then wander into all the barns later in the day. Have a wonderful time and bring lots of money!
