Blue Ribbon Kick Off - The Great Steak Debate

Friday, August 23 | 6:00pm | State Fair Event Tent


Presented by Tom Dinsdale Automotive

Join us for the Annual Blue 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 2024 Winner of the Great Steak Debate!

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 and everything in between - we'll be grilling up Nebraska's finest and sipping on perfectly paired wines and Nebraska Brews - all in celebration of the 155th annual Nebraska State Fair! It's an evening you won't want to miss!

We're pairing steak tasting with great conversation, sprinkling in live entertainment mixed with good old-fashioned competition and rounding the evening out with all the sights, tastes and sounds to satisfy any State Fair enthusiast!
