Events in August 2014

Cool off at the Yuba, Scott’s Flat Lake or Rollins Lake – we’re having a hot summer. The evenings are pleasant and perfect for outdoor dining. Come and enjoy a summer getaway in our lovely, little town.

August 1~ First Friday Artwalk –  The First Friday Art Walk is a celebration of Nevada City’s diverse mix of galleries, artisan boutiques, retail shops, wine tasting rooms, restaurants, as well as our wonderfully artistic and creative community. Participating Downtown businesses will stay open until 9pm every First Friday monthly and many will host “receptions” with local artists, trunk shows, and/or performances. Many shops are also offering snacks and beverages as well as sales and specials only valid for the event. For more information:

August 1 ~ 15 – Off Broadstreet presents SUDS – Set in a laundromat in the early 1960′s, SUDS makes clever use of more than forty familiar hit songs from the era. When Laundromat employee Cindy (Lyra Dominguez) laments the fact that she has been jilted by her pen-pal boyfriend by singing “Have you ever been lonely…you gotta help me girl,” two guardian angles (Jan Knopp & Nancy Keith), appear quickly and respond with “you cant hurry love, no you just have to wait!” For more information:
