The Nebraska State Fair is an annual 11-day event that is held at the end of August through early September, ending on Labor Day. The fair is hosted at Fonner Park in Grand Island, NE.

Our home in the Nebraska Building draws crowds each year who come to see our 6,000-gallon aquarium filled with fish found in Nebraska waters, indoor archery and pellet gun ranges, kids’ Nerf gun range and huge diorama of the Niobrara River Valley, as well as information on conservation and research efforts across the state. Outside, a meandering stream, covered picnic area, playground, mock campsite and beautifully landscaped grounds give fair visitors a place to relax.

Come visit us at the 2016 Nebraska State Fair Aug. 26 through Sept. 5, 2016.
