Nebraska State Fair 4-H ribbons


The 2020 Nebraska State Fair will be a celebration of 4-H and FFA youth! 4-H and FFA livestock shows will take place on separate weekends. The 4-H contests and livestock shows will be held on the first weekend (Aug. 29-30). Static exhibits will be on display for the public to view and will also be shown virtually. Stay tuned for more details.

The Nebraska State Fair is the premier opportunity for 4-H members to showcase what they have learned and worked on throughout the year. At the State Fair, we celebrate the successes of thousands of youth who have learned and grown through 4-H. The State Fair is a prime opportunity for 4-H members to cultivate skills they have learned in 4-H projects, put their life skills and good character to work, discover new areas of interest, and meet new people. The Nebraska State Fair is held each year at the Nebraska State Fairgrounds in Grand Island, Nebraska. This year's event will be held August 28 - September 7, 2020.
