Nevada County Cultural Districts

Nevada County is a preeminent West Coast cultural destination. It’s rich, high quality, and varied offerings rival that of any rural town in the country. It’s arts and cultural industry is crucial to Nevada County for both residents and tourists, and serves as a major source of employment while adding significantly to the tax base of the County.

And to prove our point, Grass Valley-Nevada City Cultural District and Truckee Cultural District have been selected as two of California’s premier state-designated cultural districts under California Arts Council’s Cultural District Program. They join twelve other districts that are launching the innovative new program highlighting thriving cultural diversity and unique artistic identities within California, home to the country’s leading creative economy.

The Official Guide to Nevada County is the Official Guide to Nevada County. It showcases the rich cultural offerings that helped us secure two places on the list of 14 California’s Cultural Districts.

The Nevada County Arts Council

The Nevada County Arts Council is the coordinating organization for the arts in our county. A 501c3 not-for-profit organization, they facilitate collaborative efforts that promote and sustain the visual, literary and performing arts of Nevada County to advance the cultural, social and economic life of our community.

It is through their hard work and diligence that we were able to secure our two Cultural District designations.
