On Tuesday, RCRC Delegate and Placer County Supervisor Jim Holmes joined California Department of Food & Agriculture Secretary Karen Ross, and Placer Valley Tourism at the official unveiling of @TheGrounds in Roseville.  @TheGrounds is a collaboration between Placer Valley Tourism and Placer County to rejuvenate the Placer County Fairgrounds, expanding upon event capabilities into the winter months.  

The Placer County Fairgrounds has been in disrepair for the last several years. Placer County is fortunate to be able to partner with Placer Valley Tourism to have the fairgrounds become a year around events center and a destination point. We envision a large scale Farmer’s Market , the continuation and enhancement  of the Junior Livestock Auction, outdoor playing fields, and a quality conference center. It will be exciting to watch the growth of the @Grounds in the next few years.

Placer Valley Tourism was formed in 2004 as a Business Improvement Area to improve the health of the lodging industry primarily through increasing room sales and rates.  Over the years, the organization has transformed itself so that it is not only able to attract and assist events to come to Roseville, Rocklin, and Lincoln, but now has the capacity to help improve tourism oriented facilities.
