New Features Coming to the Nebraska State Fair


The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is gearing up for this year’s Nebraska State Fair. We’ve added several exciting new features this year including an outdoor meandering steam, which runs along the edge of the outdoor playground just outside the Nebraska Building. The seven-foot-wide stream stretches 115 feet and features waterfalls, stonework and landscaping inspired by the Niobrara River valley and constructed by Greenworks of Grand Island. Visitors are invited to grab a seat, relax and enjoy the scenery.

Also new is a multi-screen exhibit detailing the reintroduction of bighorn sheep in Nebraska. The exhibit showcases how the sheep were captured and released into Nebraska and allows guests to follow the path of a migrating bighorn using data collected from a GPS radio collar. Additionally, a NEBRASKAland Magazine photo display will feature prints of wildlife, landscapes and beautiful scenes from outdoor Nebraska.

These features are in addition to the archery and airgun ranges, aquarium, kids’ games and outdoor playground that made last year’s exhibit a big success. For more information on our fair exhibit, visit our website.
