The deadline to turn in entry forms to enter exhibits is 4 p.m. on Sept. 16. It’s free to enter, and all exhibitors will receive complimentary tickets to the Friday evening performance of the Draft Horse Classic.

Entry forms are now being accepted at the fair office and online at http://www.NevadaCountyFair.com. There are more than 100 different categories to choose from, including fruits and vegetables, cobblers, harvest pies, scarecrows, jams, honey, cut flowers, produce characters and birdhouses. There’s even a “Garden Photo Contest” to share the beauty of your own garden and plants; and an Adult Artistic Corner for those interested in showing off arts and crafts. There will also be a division for youth and teens, which includes categories like apple face dolls, decoupage, Halloween masks, painted pumpkins, wreaths, table settings and ceramics. In addition, a Special People’s division has been established for those interested in showing off their talents.

There are six performances featuring the beautiful Draft Horses — Thursday and Friday at 6:30 p.m., Saturday at 10 a.m. and 6:30 p.m., and Sunday at 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

In addition to the draft horse performances, the Harvest Fair is happening at the fairgrounds throughout the event.
