County Fairs

1 of 6
The Nebraska State Fair helps showcase the best this state offers by encouraging county fairs to exhibit and partake in the festivities, including 4-H, FFA and open class competitions, diversity of foods that satisfies all tastes, agricultural, industrial and home-life exhibits, and a wide range of entertainment for the enjoyment of fairgoers of all ages. There are several ways county fairs participate in the State Fair in addition to exhibiting projects and livestock. Read more below!
