May 26, 2020 – At the Nevada County Fairgrounds Board of Directors meeting Tuesday evening, the decision regarding the status of the 2020 Nevada County Fair was postponed.
The decision comes in light of Governor Newsom’s announcement on Tuesday afternoon that California is moving rapidly into Stage 3 of the reopening plan.
The delay will allow Fairgrounds staff and the Board to conduct fact finding, communicate with State and local public health officials and review any updated guidance regarding mass gatherings.
“We recognize that the Nevada County Fair is a treasured local event and that the cancellation would have an enormous impact on the community,” said Jeanette Royal, Board President of California’s 17th District Agricultural Association. “Given that, and in light of the Governor’s announcement this afternoon, we need to make a decision based on the most current information available.”
The 2020 Nevada County Fair decision will be considered at the next Fairgrounds Board of Directors meeting, scheduled for Tuesday, June 9, 2020.
