It’s three for three! Bring three cans of food to the Fair on Sunday and receive $3 off adult ticket.

Imagine being able to visit the annual Nevada County Fair at a discount, and be able to help the local Food Bank at the same time? At this year’s Fair, you can! The Nevada County Fairgrounds and The Food Bank of Nevada County are teaming up to help feed those in need.

This year, it’s three for $3.  All you have to do is bring three cans of food to the Fair on Sunday, August 12, and you will receive a coupon for $3 off an adult admission ticket to the Fair on that day!  The Food Bank will have food collection bins available at the Fairgrounds from
10 am – 5 pm at Gates 1, 3 and 5, which is also where you’ll receive your coupon. You must donate at least three cans of food to receive the discount; no partial discounts given.

All food collected on that day will be given to The Food Bank of Nevada County, which distributes food to those in need in our county.

It’s the best of both worlds – fun at the Fair, while helping out in the community. It’s all part of Community Involvement Day, sponsored by YubaNet.com, on Sunday, August 12, at the Nevada County Fair.

Also on happening at the Fair on Sunday – the Junior Livestock Auction, the Barbershop Quartet Contest, Gold Country Gymnasts performing, the Diaper Derby, America’s Winning Hypnotist Michael Mezmer, and the Demolition Derby in the Arena.

This year’s Fair is August 8 – 12. Visit www.NevadaCountyFair.com for more information or call the Fair Office at (530) 273-6217. For more information about the Food Bank of Nevada County, visit www.foodbankofnc.org or call (530) 272-3796.
