Welcome to the Seward County Fair ​Website

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.

Each year the Seward County Fair showcases the talents and hard work of the county’s citizens. We invite you to tour the countless exhibits and catch one of the many shows at our fair. 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 2024 Seward County Fair!

Nebraska Pioneer Farm Family Award

Nebraska is full of families who have been farming and keeping traditions alive for decades.

Eligibility for Farm Award:

  • A minimum of 40 acres that continues to operate as a farm or ranch
  • Same family must have continuously owned for a minimum of 100 years
  • Ownership from original buyer has passed through children, grandchildren, siblings, nieces, nephews, through marriage or adoption

Applications for an Aksarben Farm Family Award may be submitted at anytime throughout the year, but the cutoff date for application processing is April 15th.

Once Aksarben receives your application, they will process with the county the farmland is located within. They work with the County Fair Board Representative to ensure that all historic information and family lineage is verified. Once they receive approval from the county, the award and gatepost marker are created and presented to the family at their respective county fair throughout the summer months.

This award is sponsored by the Aksarben Foundation in partnership with the Nebraska Farm Bureau and the Nebraska Association of Fair Managers. These awards honor the families who have held same family ownership of land for 100 (Pioneer Award) and 150 (Heritage Award) years.
