153rd Annual
Seward County Fair

August 10-13, 2023



2023 Seward County Fair Sponsors

    Welcome to the 153rd Annual Seward County Fair

Each year the Seward County Fair showcases the talents and hard work of the county’s citizens. We invite you to catch one of the many shows and tour the countless exhibits.

The purpose of the county fair is to showcase agriculture and throughout the fair you will find both exhibits and activities that demonstrate the important role that agriculture plays in Seward County and Nebraska. Our fair also offers a wide selection of your fair food favorites and a variety of entertainment events to suit everyone’s tastes.

This fair is made possible by the taxpayers of Seward County, many generous sponsors, commercial exhibitors, and countless volunteers. The Seward County Ag Society would like to thank each of them for making the Seward County Fair a huge success!

See you at the fair!

No Carnival at the 2023 Seward County Fair!

The Seward County Fairboard has been working tirelessly at trying to find a carnival for the fair but with less and less carnivals available, and the ones that are out there being loyal to their prior counties, we will not be having a carnival at the fair this year. We will be offering several new attractions this year that will be FREE to help replace the rides.

Open Class & Lego Exhibits on the Move!

We have done a little flip flopping in our exhibit buildings. The Open Class and Lego exhibits will now be in Harvest Hall and the Wine & Cheese Event will be held in the Ag Pavilion. Make sure to watch for the fairbook and schedule brochure for all fair event locations and times.
