The Nebraska State Fair: The nation’s most innovative exhibition focusing on interactive agriculture and educational experiences promoting families, fun, and Nebraska pride.

The Nebraska State Fair is an annual 11-day event that is held at the end of August through early September, ending on Labor Day. The fair is hosted at Fonner Park in Grand Island, NE. 

The Nebraska State Fair offers insights into the unique culture of Nebraska. It is built on 147 years of tradition and showcases the talent, products and people of Nebraska. Here, Nebraskans come together to experience the latest technological advancements in agriculture, first-class entertainment and the most delectable and extraordinary food the state has to offer. Like many state fairs, the Nebraska State Fair includes a competitive livestock exhibition, farming equipment trade show, and competitions in other fields, such as handmade crafts and baked goods.
