Guidestar Platinum Seal The Lancaster County Agricultural Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit of publicly-elected board of passionate volunteers who run the Lancaster Event Center (LEC) and Lancaster County’s Super Fair to the benefit of Lancaster County, Nebraska and its citizens. Their mission is to share experiences in a unique venue that showcases the agricultural nature of Lancaster County and to contribute greatly to the county’s youth, culture and economy.

LEC hosts over 320+ events per year so that they can support a 10-day county fair for the 4-H and FFA kids to qualify for state, regional and national finals. In its 150th year, grown from two days in borrowed buildings with 5,000 attendees to now 10 days with over 120,000 attendees, it is the showcase of Lancaster County with over 9,000 entries from more than 700 local 4-H/FFA youth exhibitors and 500+ open-class exhibitors of all ages. The Lancaster County Super Fair is the largest county fair in Nebraska and one of the largest 4-H/FFA county fairs in the country.

The facility provides a safe and fun environment for families all year long and drives economic impact to the surrounding area and reduces tax liability of the local community. As a non-profit with over 400,000 square feet, 160 acres and a County Fair that needs to be maintained, continually improved and accessible to the benefit of youth and the community for years to come, please consider giving generously to help us continue to…let the good times grow!

Help us support our event promoters, visitors and our community...  

  • This pandemic slammed our doors shut for 3-1/2 months and, even now, we can only operate some shows at 50% capacity. 

  • Bulk hand sanitizer and masks aren't how we wanted to spend our hard-earned dollars this year, but it's the price of admission for opening our doors to support our community by hosting their events. 

  • Most county fairgrounds receive $20-30 per citizen, but YOUR Lancaster Event Center fairgrounds only receives $1.20 per citizen. 

  • If everyone in Lancaster County pitched in just $5, our 2020 pandemic budget would be balanced and we could be ready for 2021!
