Many of the vendors come back every year. Ketcham says they are professionals who run the local circuit of street fairs and flea markets and events. Monies raised through the event will help the Nevada County Historical society keep open the Nevada County Railroad Museum, the Firehouse Museum, the Mining Museum and the History Center which is home to the Searls Historical Library. All of the museums and the Searls Historical Library are now open to the public through the summer.
