How to get a job at the Nevada County Fair

Job Fair on July 20

If you are interested in a job, come to the Fairgrounds’ Main Street Center on July 20th between 2:00 pm and 6:00 pm and all will be revealed. Do you want to be the host for an exhibit building? Maybe greeting people at the gates and scanning tickets is your jam? The animals at the Fair need tending if you prefer spending time with critters and more. Behind-the-scenes positions also need filling, in sum, there’s a job for everyone.

Free Fair admission

Nevada County Fair CEO Andrew Trygg would love to have young people join the team, “If you’re a teenager out there looking for a job, and you’re 15 and a half or older with a work permit, you can come work a couple of hours each day and then get into the fair for free.”

The same goes for adults of course. A group of real estate agents has already signed up, and Trygg is welcoming more group applications and individual sign-ups.
