NV County BOS Highlight the Importance of the Nevada Fairgrounds and Urge the Public's Support

At its meeting on July 14, 2020 the Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to adopt a Resolution proclaiming support for the Seventeenth District Agricultural Association, known as the Nevada County Fairgrounds.

The first Nevada County Fair was held in 1938 at the Veteran’s Memorial Building and annually thereafter, including at its current location on McCourtney Road since 1947. Today the Nevada County Fair contributes to an estimated $3.9 billion in economic activity as a part of the network of California Fairs across the State with events generating approximately over $28,000,000 in local spending. However, with the outbreak of COVID19, the Nevada County Fairgrounds remain closed to the public with the Board of Directors voting to cancel the 2020 Nevada County Fair and the 2020 Draft Horse Classic. To help augment the loss of revenue, the Nevada County Fairgrounds is continuing its efforts to support the community. This includes:

The Resolution encourages members of the public to participate in events that promote the Nevada County Fairgrounds as a critical economic driver and integral cultural asset to the community of Nevada County. Despite the cancellation of the 2020 Annual Nevada County Fair, the Nevada County Fairgrounds is continuing its efforts to support the Community.
