The Nevada City Classic will be held on the weekend of September 5-6, 2020. We look forward to the first ever September Classic, rescheduled due to COVID-19. In spite of recent sequestrations and events, the Nevada City Classic team is starting the process of planning this year’s event to take place on Saturday and Sunday, September 5-6.

We recognize that events that lay ahead remain unknown. We are committed to complying with all mandates for health and safety. Because it takes months to plan the event, the team is planning the annual schedule, just in case.
