Get Ready For Your Business to be Highlighted to potentially 300,000+ people Aug 26 – Sept 5!








Registration Open

The GROW Nebraska State Fair Buy Local Store is in it’s 18th year!

It’s a fun and perfect opportunity to network with other GROW Nebraska® members and promote your business to potentially 300,000+ state fair attendees. This is a great platform to market your business!

Due to the circumstances this year, we are allowing members to begin the registration process and secure their 2021 state fair spot without payment. Your payment will be required after the state fair committee announces their official plans, at which point GROW Nebraska® will reach out to all members who have registered.

Spaces are limited to the first 75 members. Please register to reserve your space. Payment is due in full by or before August 1.

Friday, August 26th – Monday, September 5th

GROW Nebraska Staffs the State Fair Store for all 11 days!

Step #2 After Registering

Let us know what you’ll bring

Once you’re signed up, let us know what products you’re going to bring to the state fair store. Fill out this form, and we’ll send you pricing stickers and make sure the products are on

Please apply the stickers to your products before you bring them to the state fair!

Shelf Talker Examples

The design will change but the concept will remain – stand out and showcase your business at the state fair and in our retail store. Please be prepared to upload your smiling face brand image during step #2.

Step #3 

Upon completion of step #2, the final phase is to secure your sampling, demo & volunteer spots. The opportunity to sign up first, will be sent to those who fully complete Step #1 & #2 and whose payment we have received after we know for certain the state fair is taking place.

Schedule Your Product Drop Off

We are aiming for record sales again this year! Which in turn means each participant is expected to drop off their product at our State Fair Store and set up their pre-approved display. This allows us to ensure each display is top notch and ready for buyers!

Showcase Your Product

Do you want the opportunity to demo or sample your product to over 300,000 Nebraska State Fair goers? Complete Step #3 while we still have available time slots!

Volunteer or Work
We Want You!

GROW Nebraska staffs this Buy Local State Fair Store for all 11 days. However, we could never be successful without the help of GROW Members like you. Consider helping out this year, from stocking product, helping customers and checking people out; there will always be something to keep you busy at this year’s State Fair Buy Local Store!
