(May 2, 2013) There's no place like the Nebraska State Fair! It's the premier showcase for 4-H'ers to share what they've learned and worked on in 4-H throughout the year. At the Fair, we celebrate the successes of thousands of kids who've learned and grown through 4-H.
The Nebraska State Fair is also a prime opportunity for 4-H'ers to cultivate skills they've learned in 4-H projects, put their life skills and good character to work, discover areas they'd like to learn more about, and to meet other kids and adults.
The 2013 Nebraska State Fair will be held August 23 - September 2, 2013, at the Nebraska State Fairgrounds in Grand Island, Nebraska. Check out the complete Schedule of 4-H Events at the Nebraska State Fair; it will be updated throughout the summer.
And, numerous Nebraska State Fair 4-H Resources (fairbook, scoresheets, schedules, maps, etc.) are available to help prepare 4-H participants for the Nebraska State Fair events.
We look forward to seeing you at the 2013 Nebraska State Fair!
