Mark your calendars for July 21-25 and plan to attend the Hall County Fair at Fonner Park in Grand Island, Nebraska for loads of family fun.
Fun for everyone
The fair will once again include the popular 4-H exhibits, open class exhibits and livestock shows, as well as a kid-sanctioned pedal pull, bingo, vendor booths and the DC LYNCH Carnival’s rides for everyone to enjoy. Plus, there's a chance to win a bicycle (one girl and one boy bike) when you purchase Carnival Ride tickets! Tickets are available at all Grand Island Pump and Pantry locations. To enter the bike drawing, just drop off your ticket stub at the Fair office with your name and phone number.
You can also look forward to playing games and enjoying the notorious fair food — you can’t beat a good funnel cake or fresh-squeezed lemonade!
Speaking of food, the sizzle is on again this year! The Hall County Fair, in conjunction with Hear Grand Island and Fonner Park presents Q4ACause, a giant Bar-B-Q coupled with a FREE music festival with proceeds going to the community, county and numerous charities. Make your way to the Aurora Cooperative Pavilion from Friday through Sunday to jam with the Hanging Cowboys, Judd Hoos, B D and The Boys, Honeyton, Freakabout, Callista Clark and DJ Frando.
The excitement continues inside the boxing ring! Showtime Television Network is bringing its nationally televised Showbox 20th Anniversary Boxing to the fair. In addition to four nationally televised bouts they will feature multiple undercard fights including the 2016 Olympic Bronze Medalist, Niko Hernandez. VIP seating and tables are available for the Friday, July 23, 2021 event. Tickets go on sale to the public at 10:00 a.m. on July 1. Special family four-pack rates will be available for the first two days of the sale.
The fair also features plenty of educational and community-based activities. From Thursday through Sunday, children ages 2-12 have the opportunity to learn about the importance of agriculture and how it affects the community with the Little Feet on the Farm program. On Friday, there will a community blood drive from 10-3 in the Pinnacle Bank Expo Building. Stick around on Sunday for the Pioneer Farm and Heritage Farm Awards ceremony. These awards honor families who have owned land for 100 and 150 years.
Get some exercise and help promote a tobacco-free lifestyle with a walk/run race on July 24.
