4-H member Tristin LaFever of Reno and his dog Tundra run the dog agility course at the Carson City Fair at Fuji Park in 2017.
The Silver and Sage Fair will bring livestock, events, and music to the Douglas County Fairgrounds on Pinenut Road, Friday to Sunday, July 23-25.
Previously the Carson City Fair hosted at Fuji Park, organizers decided to rebrand with the move to the Douglas County. Before COVID hit and forced summer event cancellations, residents had voted via Facebook to call it the Silver and Sage Fair.
Chelsy Simerson, president of the fair’s executive board, said she’s delighted to be back for 2021, with a new location and new name.
“We’re really excited. Our main focus was to open up the event for the kids to be able to showcase their animals,” she said. “These kids have been working really, really hard… this has been over a yearlong project for them.”
She added that she has three boys of her own who are all excited to auction their livestock.
The youth livestock showing is the fair’s main attraction, but folks can also look forward to a Friday night Demolition Derby, live music, and a dog show.
