Blue Ribbon Kick Off - The Great Steak Debate
Friday, August 26 | 6pm | Nebraska State Fair Event Tent

Join us for the Annual Ribbon Kick-Off as we celebrate Nothing More Nebraskan than a Great Nebraska Steak! State Fair Celebrities will pair with a Chef to prepare their very best Steak Recipe - and you get to be the judge on who is crowned the 2022 Winner of the Great Steak Debate!

Once again, guests will also enjoy mouth-watering samples of darn near every breed you can find in Nebraska. From Certified Angus to 1855 Prime to Wagyu from Morgan Ranch and everything in between - we'll be grilling up Nebraska's finest steaks and sipping on perfectly paired wines and Nebraska brews - it's an evening you won't want to miss!

We invite you to join us for this fine event as we strive to continue to enhance the state fair and the goodness that it brings to all of us.

Since 2010, nearly $700,000 has been raised during our annual Blue Ribbon Events! This one-night event is an opportunity for fair friends from near and far to gather and celebrate the upcoming State Fair....while enjoying a little Food & Fun...On-a-Stick! The 1868 Foundation Board of Directors and Staff are thankful each and everyone of you who have sponsored, supported, attended and enjoyed the Blue Ribbon Events!
