Nevada City Advocate' s Mission and Commitment to Readers

We celebrate people

Our area is rich with a diverse, engaged community of dedicated people from all walks of life who make our communities great places to live. We bring you their unique stories and accomplishments with original stories by professional writers. 

We celebrate the arts

Nevada County and beyond has a cultural life that is unparalleled in communities our size and much much larger.  We are committed to highlighting the world-class arts community we are so fortunate to support. 

We celebrate commerce

Our area has a diverse business community of long-time, sometimes multi-generational independent business owners to the new businesses that create a well rounded array of locally owned shops and services. No need to go down the hill! 

We tackle local issues

Our staff of professional journalists present local issues in a fair and well researched manner so you, as a reader, can depend on the factual care that goes into all of our stories on local issues affecting the community. 

We welcome your news!

The Nevada City Advocate invites you to participate in your local newspaper by submitting your personal milestones, business accomplishments, non-profit press releases and issues you would like to see us cover.  We are here for you, our readers. We are your newspaper! 

Please send your press releases to

Deadlines are the last Wednesday of each month. 


I’ve read the Advocate ever since it’s first issue. With this issue, something important has changed.

This issue says to me, “We have an interesting, active, progressive, historic, caring community and we’re proud of it—we invite you to experience it.”
In a few words, the issue is great. Good design, organization, writing. Great work.
Thanks. Pat Barrentine


Thank you for your great work and your great paper that I read every month.  We are so lucky the Advocate is part of our community.  I actually took pleasure in paying for my ad with you. That's because of how you present news and the good feeling that I have when reading the Advocate.  I also see that you have an online PDF version of your paper.  So my ad will be seen even wider which is excellent news and well worth the price.  Thank you Advocate for supporting a thriving community!  - Chula Gemignani
