Nevada County Fair
August 10 thru August 14
Sign Up: Peter Voskes is the event organizer. Sign up at club meetings, call or text Peter (650-678-8262), or email Peter to signup. You can not signup on the website. Current roster of demonstrators. Current roster of set up/ tear down.
New Members: A great opportunity to turn, get coaching from experienced members, practice and get new ideas and tips. Turning with a group will definitely increase your skill level and it is also a lot of fun. Thinking, I'm new to this and I'm not ready to turn in front of a crowd. Once you start turning you'll forget there is anyone there. Besides there will be veteran turners there to help you. Four lathes, turning tools and extra wood available for your use if you can not bring your own.
Empty Bowls: Take this opportunity to turn 6 - 9 inch bowls for the Empty Bowls charity.
Don't want to turn? We need "greeters" for each session to interface with the public to explain our craft and our club.
Club members will be demonstrating for all 5 days of the County Fair from Wednesday Aug. 10 thru Sunday Aug. 14. There will be 2 sessions per day: 10 - 2, and 2 - 6.
Participants normally receive a free ticket ( and parking pass ) for the day(s) they "perform".
The County Fair is also a place where we get to interface with people who may be interested in our craft and would like to pursue it further.
