A Message from Ag Society Board to Lancaster County 4-H Families & Extension Board/Staff,

As your Ag Society Board we wanted to thank each of you for your part in a successful 2017 Super Fair where your participation was strong across the board and we are happy to report public attendance was up 17% as well. Congratulations on all your hard work and we are proud as a volunteer, elected board to support your efforts in one of the largest 4-H county fairs in the USA.

We wanted you to be the first to know that the board voted in our last monthly meeting to set the 2018 fair dates as the four days of Thursday, August 2nd to Sunday, August 5th. The schedule on these days will be nearly identical as what has been the first four days of the fair for many years with the focus to be on what has always been the core of our county fair—the 4-H days. After trying to offer an additional six days with open class competitions since 2010, the public has let us know loud and clear that their favorite part of the fair are the 4-H days, so we are going back to concentrate on those days and make them better than ever.

As we do this, we want to make sure the fair is not only a challenging learning experience for our 4-H’ers but also a fun, memorable experience for our 4-H families as well. We’ll always be looking for more ways to involve you in the planning, getting ready for and running the fair as is the tradition of county fairs across Nebraska and the USA. Please reach out to any of us or LEC staff with any ideas or suggestions anytime— click here for our board and staff list.

Thanks again for your participation in the Lancaster County Super Fair which, yes, will still be “super” during its four days due to all your efforts and success!
