UPDATE, TUESDAY, JULY 27, 2021, 11:15am - As of this moment, The Plumas-Sierra County Fair is still planning on having the fair as scheduled. I think we all know that things can change by next week, or later this week, or even this afternoon. We will be making an assessment of the situation by the end of this week, and then make a final assessment by the middle of next week. There would be two reasons not to have a Fair: the first is if we can't. If the fire is still a threat, and it's not safe to have a Fair, we won't. The second reason is if it is not appropriate. Should there be even more loss of property or life, our resources should be focused on that. Make no mistake, it is our priority to find a way to come together at the Plumas Sierra County Fairgrounds for our Livestock Show, August 11-15 and the Main Fair on August 19-22, we just have lots of things to consider and we know everyone understands.
At this point, the only impact, assuming things move forward, will be that campers for the Livestock Show will probably have to come in on Monday and Tuesday, August 9 & 10 instead of over the weekend; August 7 & 8. We will also have to assess where we can receive exhibits; remember, Home Arts exhibits are brought in on Friday, August 6 and Saturday, August 7. Art Barn exhibits are brought in on Thursday, August 5 and Friday, August 6. At this point, we are planning on doing that at the front gate of the Fairgrounds. If we have to make a change, we will get the word out as soon as possible.
We are still receiving entry forms for the Art Barn, Home Arts and Floriculture Buildings. Pre-sale carnival tickets are still on sale. You can still adopt a fish to benefit the Art Barn. We are moving forward on planning. Residents are welcome to call the Fair Office with questions at 283-6272. If there is not answer, please leave a message and your call will be returned.
Now you know what I know. Check back on the website or on Facebook for any changes. Thank you for your support of the Fair and the fire fighters, I know they see your messages and appreciate it.
