Book includes all the information you need to enter exhibits in this year’s Fair

The Nevada County Fair’s Competition Handbook, which includes all the information you need to enter exhibits in this year’s Fair, is now available. If you can make it, bake it, grow it or show it, there is a category for you!

There are hundreds of categories and specialty contests for adults and children. Try entering one of the traditional categories like baking cookies, entering a prized photo, creating a poster, showing something from your garden, or displaying a favorite collection. Or, enter one of the specialty categories like creating a shoe box mine, building a car for the solar-powered sprint car races, creating a produce character, or entering the “ugliest dang cake” contest.

Copies of the free handbook are available at the Chamber of Commerce offices, county libraries, at the Fairgrounds’ Office, or on-line at www.NevadaCountyFair.com.  Area schools have also received a flyer with information about contests available to Nevada County youth.

The deadline for submitting paper entry forms and on-line entries is July 8 at 4 pm. While there isn’t an entry fee for youth entries done online; there is an entry fee for adult online entries and paper entries and a 50 cent entry fee for most youth paper entries. Please refer to the various Competition Handbook categories for the set fees.

This year’s Competition Handbook also contains information on discount days at the Fair, details about daily contests at the Fair, arena events, and advanced sale tickets.

The 2011 Nevada County Fair is August 10 – 14. For more information, visit www.NevadaCountyFair.com or call (530) 273-6217. You can follow the Fairgrounds on Facebook at “Nevada County Fairgrounds.”
