Change Coming To Nebraska State Fair Ticket Purchases

There’s a change to the Nebraska State Fair concert series this year: no lines, no waiting and no wristbands. Fair executive director Joseph McDermott says they’re replacing the wristband program with reserved seat ticketing. That means concertgoers will no longer need to stand in line to get wristbands — something that will help those who live outside of the Grand Island area.

 

Concert tickets will go on sale August 4th, while the Nebraska State Fair opens August 22nd.

There will also be a six-dollar convenience fee for the tickets, though McDermott says fairgoers shouldn’t be too upset.


Tickets can be purchased through the website e-tix-dot-com or by calling or stopping by the Heartland Events Center in person. The 145th Nebraska State Fair is scheduled to open August 22nd, while concert tickets will go on sale August 4th.
