Fairgrounds, HOPE team up at Country Christmas Faire


The Nevada County Fairgrounds and Helping Other People Eat are teaming up to help feed those in need in Nevada County.

Bring a can of food (or two or three) to the Country Christmas Faire Nov. 25, and the fairgrounds will give you a coupon for $1 off general admission to the Christmas Faire on that day (one coupon per person). Volunteers from HOPE will collect the cans from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Gates 1, 3 and 5.

The Country Christmas Faire is happening Thanksgiving weekend, Nov. 23-25, at the Nevada County Fairgrounds. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. Cost is $4, and free to children younger than 12. Parking is $5; however, faire-goers will receive one free admission for each paid parking pass. For information, visit www.NevadaCountyFair.com or call (530) 273-6217.
