State Fair officials have unveiled the theme of this year's Nebraska State Fair -- "A Bumper Crop of Fun".
The theme is meant to be a reflection of the fair's new mission statement, according to Shaun Schleif, marketing and sponsorship director.
The mission statement is: "The nation's
most innovative exhibition focusing on interactive agriculture and educational
experiences promoting families, fun, and Nebraska pride."
"The new theme is
very forward thinking, while still incorporating the important features that
have been part of the Nebraska State Fair's fabric for the past 145 years,"
Schleif said. The idea is that the agricultural and educational staples of the fair are being made more interactive and technologically advanced.
ultimate goal in everything we do is to provide a safe clean family event that
allows everyone attending to learn something, see something and experience
something new—to create new memories that last a lifetime. Most of all, we want everyone to have fun," said Schleif.
The Nebraska State
Fair will take place from August 22 through September 1.
