Fairgrounds gets $25,000 donation

The Nevada County Fairgrounds Foundation, Inc. has received a $25,000 donation that will help with construction costs of a new multi-purpose pavilion to show animals and house draft horses.

The donor has asked to remain anonymous.

The new building will be the home of the Junior Swine exhibit during the fair and provide a new show and sale ring for the Junior Livestock Auction. The fair has envisioned the facility for years and was the catalyst for creating the foundation, said Ed Scofield, fairgrounds CEO.

A cost estimate for the facility will be known once the design of the building is complete, said Sandy Woods, deputy manager for the fairgrounds.

“It’s in the early stages of the design process,” Woods said.

Construction of the pavilion could begin next year, Woods said.
