LEC Grows Impact!

Current event impact. LEC has grown every year since opening in 2001 to now host over 320 events for a 1/2 million visitors (see annual show attendance at a glance)!  The incremental economic impact of all the out-of-county visitors was recently measured by UNL in an economic impact report—read how LEC brings $40 million and over 500 jobs to the county each year!

New event impact. And LEC continues to grow its impact each year through existing event growth (such as Cornhusker Classic Quarter Horse show in June has nearly tripled in size over the last three years to become a top 10 show in the USA) as well as new events choosing LEC—see our latest news below about the NHSFR choosing Lincoln again as of January 2019!
