Like all 4-H programs, the State 4-H Horse Show relies heavily on volunteers to run a smooth event. A variety of roles are available throughout the event, such as gatekeepers, ring stewards, record keepers, equipment movers, and more! To volunteer at this year's State 4-H Horse Expo or to learn more, complete the form below. We will contact you directly with more information. 

Volunteer Interest Form


Due to another large event occurring during the same dates as the 2022 Fonner Park State 4-H Horse Expo, 4-H families are highly encouraged to book hotel rooms and reserve camper/RV hookups as early as possible. Camper/RV hookups will be available on a first-come-first-serve basis, and reservations can be made by contacting Kathy at 308-382-4515.

Camper/RV Hook Up

Due to the increased number of request for Camper Hookups, Fonner Park and Nebraska 4-H have developed the following guidelines:

  • Reservation must be made directly with Fonner Park due to another large event coinciding with the 2021 Fonner Park State 4-H Horse Expo. Call Kathy at 308-382-4515 ext. 213 or email to reserve your space.
  • Camper hookups will be available on a first-come-first-serve basis.
  • Camper Parking will be on the north side of the grounds along Fonner Park Road in the RV Park.
  • Fonner Park requests that NO camper/living quarter trailers be on the ground prior to noon, Friday before the start of the show on Saturday.
  • Parking will be available afternoon on Friday. However, trailers/campers cannot be left unattended to prevent theft and vandalism to your property as this has been an issue in the past.
  • A $35 fee per day will be charged for all trailer/campers through the event.
