Halloween Fun at the Fairgrounds: 2 – 5 pm Graveyard Ghoul-a: 8 pm – midnight

Join in the fall festivities and Halloween fun at the Nevada County Fairgrounds on Saturday, October 29. This year, there are two events to choose from – “Halloween Fun at the Fairgrounds” during the day for children and families, and a “Graveyard Ghoul-a” at night for adults. Rain or shine, in costume or in street clothes, don’t miss out on the fun!

Halloween Fun at the Fairgrounds: A Treat for the Kids

Bring your family and friends for some Halloween Fun at the Fairgrounds, from 2- 5 pm on Saturday, October 29. Hamburgers and hot dogs will be served, and there will be live musical entertainment. There will be treats for the kids, a silent auction, a cupcake walk, and lots of games. Plus, you don’t want to miss the costume contests and a chance to win some great prizes!

As part of the fun this year, Nevada Union and Bear River high schools will compete in a Pumpkin Chuckin’ contest that takes place during each hour of the event. Watch as students from these two schools catapult pumpkins for the furthest distance.

The cost for the Halloween event at the Fairgrounds is only $5 per person and includes food, treats, games, and entertainment!  Tickets will be available at the door on the day of the event. This family-friendly Halloween event is hosted by the Nevada County Fairgrounds Foundation

Graveyard Ghoul-a: A Treat for Adults

In the evening, for those over 21 years of age, we’ve got some ghoulish goings-on at the Graveyard Ghoul-a, which takes place on Saturday, October 29, from 8 pm to midnight.  Join us for a ghoulishly good time, including dancing, a rockin’ DJ, beer and booooze, food, and a costume contest.  And you don’t want to miss out on some great door prizes. Tickets to the Graveyard Ghoul-a are $15 and can be purchased at the door. Parking is free, and, for your convenience, camping will be available.
