History

A new phase in the history of the Fairgrounds began.

Seward County Fairgrounds
216 S 9th St
Seward, NE

In 1988, The Seward County Agriculture Society initiated plans to modernize the facilities of the County Fairgrounds. The fairgrounds occupy a beautiful setting along the Blue River in West Seward. With the blessing of the County Commissioners and the financial support of the taxpaying public of Seward County, a new phase in the history of the Fairgrounds began.
The first addition was the Ag Pavilion; this large structure opened in the 1990’s and has been the heart of the annual county fair, home to large public and social gatherings, and equipment/craft displays.

In 2001, the Ag Society’s attention focused on the 4-H livestock facilities. The new all steel, low maintenance facility complete with a show arena, sound system and modern livestock penning system was the highlight of that year’s fair.

2003 marked the completion of updates specific to the 4-H and FFA programs with the opening of the 4-H Center. The building, previously known as the Show Pavilion, is now publicly utilized most weekends throughout the year.
