Nebraska State Fair to hold livestock, static exhibits only

Nebraska State Fair to hold livestock, static exhibits only

The Nebraska state fair board held a special meeting Tuesday morning to decide on the fate of the 2020 state fair.

The board voted to hold livestock and static exhibits only at this point but authorized the staff to hold other activities that are fiscally responsible and within the health guidelines.

Beth Smith, board chair, and Bill Ogg, new executive director, discuss what the 2020 state fair will look like.
