Nevada County Fairgrounds closed to pedestrians Sept. 8 through 15

In preparation for the Strawberry Music Festival, September 11 through 14, the Nevada County Fairgrounds will be closed to pedestrians — walkers and bicyclists — beginning at noon today. The fairgrounds will re-open its gates to walkers and bicyclists as usual on Sept. 16. This closure does not affect the main office, which is open during its normal business hours of Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The RV Park at the Fairgrounds will also be closed to the public from September 8 through 14.

At various times throughout the year the grounds are rented by organizations for large, community events like the Strawberry Music Festival, the California WorldFest, the Bluegrass Festival, and the KVMR Celtic Festival. During these times, it becomes necessary to close the grounds to pedestrians in preparation for these various events.
