Nevada County Fairgrounds Receives Top Honors at the Western Fairs Association’s Annual Achievement Awards
Fairgrounds recognized in industry for work in community partnerships, Fair competitions
The Nevada County Fairgrounds received 28 awards through the 48th Annual Western Fairs Association’s (WFA) Achievement Awards Program. The Nevada County Fairgrounds took home first-place honors for its community partnership with the Nevada County Library’s summer reading program, its Lego Experience exhibit, its “Decorative Chair” exhibit competition, its “tree” exhibit displays at the Fair entrances, and several of the Fair and Draft Horse Classic promotional pieces.
For this year’s WFA Achievement Awards Program, offered to recognize excellence and to share fair ideas and programs, the Nevada County Fairgrounds competed against more than 50 Fairs with similar attendance numbers within the Western United States and Canada. At the WFA Achievement Awards Ceremony, held later next week, the Nevada County Fairgrounds will collect a total of 10 first place awards, 10 second place, and four third place awards. The Fairgrounds will also receive four Honorable Mention awards.
The Western Fairs Association is a non-profit trade association serving the Fair industry throughout the Western United States and Canada.
With a theme of “Gold! Rush to the Fair,” the 2011 Nevada County Fair is August 10 – 14.
