Planning for the 2018 Nebraska State Fair is currently underway. Please check back at a later date for updates, or see what happened at the 2017 Nebraska State Fair below.

The Nebraska State Fair will again partner with Wade Shows, Inc. to be the carnival midway operator in 2017. Consistently ranked number 3 among the nations top amusement providers by CarnivalWarehouse.com, Wade Shows boasts over 100 rides, of which 40 will be featured at the Nebraska State Fair. Wade Shows also has a wide array of games and food choices. Wade Shows' presence was first felt with the addition of the AirCare Sky Tram in 2012. The AirCare Sky Tram is 1,200 feet long and climbs to a height of 40 feet above the fairgrounds. The full carnival midway joined the Nebraska State Fair in 2013.
