Nebraska State Fair Unveils 2014 Theme

“A Bumper Crop of Fun” is the Nebraska State Fair’s new theme for 2014.

“Our new theme is a reflection of our renewed mission statement approved by the Board of Directors at their December 2013 meeting," Marketing and sponsorship director, Shaun Schleif said.

The new mission statement is: The Nebraska State Fair: 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, adding, “This forward thinking involves taking the staples of the fair, and making everything more interactive, fun and technologically advanced.”

The theme logo, designed by Barry Keller of Infuze Creative Marketing incorporates livestock, grains, our agricultural roots and of course the carnival midway. All are integral parts of creating a one-of-a-kind experience for Nebraska families.

Schleif said, “Our 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.”

The Nebraska State Fair runs from Aug. 22 through Sept. 1, 2014.
