Bring the whole family and all your friends to the Plumas-Sierra County Fair August 14-18, 2013

The Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds, on the east side of Quincy, is a year-round destination for a multitude of events. The fairgrounds hosts one of the state’s oldest county fairs each August. “Plumas-Sierra County Fair — Fun, Family, Friends” is the 2013 theme. The five-day event, Aug. 14 – 18, features the efforts of Plumas and Sierra county residents: baked goods, jams, quilts, art, horticulture and agriculture, livestock shows and so much more. In addition to the ever-popular midway with rides, games and vendors, live music and entertainment highlight family fun at the fair. Visit the Peppard Cabin and step back into living history with volunteers from the local museum to hear about pioneer life in the mountains. Beginning in June, a Children’s Faire, the County Picnic and the start of a series of car racing events at American Valley Speedway kick off the summer season. The 23rd annual High Sierra Music Festival, July 4 – 7, will turn the fairgrounds into a musical meeting place for campers and music fans for a long holiday weekend ( This year the Quincy Crazy Quilters Guild will host its biennial quilt show Sept. 14 and 15 at the fairgrounds. In addition to featured quilter Karen Williams, there will be a drawing for the guild’s 2013 Opportunity Quilt, quilting and craft supplies and a display of the Hoffman Challenge quilts. For more information call (530) 283-1736. The fun continues through the summer and into autumn with team roping, motorcycle rallies and much, much more.



September brings the Feather River College Rodeo, more stockcar racing and the Plumas Arts-sponsored Mountain Harvest Festival on Oct. 19. The grounds and buildings are available for rental for anything from weddings and reunions to wine pairings, auto racing and rodeo. Ample room for camping, RV hookups and parking is available in and around the 54-acre facility at reasonable prices. There’s also a public park, playground and outdoor swimming pool adjacent to the fairgrounds. For more information about the fairgrounds, events or to make reservations, visit or call (530) 283-6272.
