The Nebraska State Fair is a public forum of limited duration and exists in part to provide a means for a great number of exhibitors to temporarily present their products or views, be they commercial, religious or political, to a large number of people in an orderly, safe, secure and efficient fashion.

To avoid congestion and to prevent any impediment in the flow of fair patrons and to facilitate the maintenance of orderly movement throughout the fairgrounds, anyone desiring to exhibit must apply for booth space as set forth in the Nebraska State Fair Space Rental Rules and Regulations, and comply with the terms and conditions of the space rental agreement.

Exhibit shall mean activities, including, but not limited to, petitioning, proselytizing and/or the sale, posting or distribution of any merchandise, products, promotional items and printed or written materials.

Sale or distribution of any merchandise, including printed or written material except under license issued by the Nebraska State Fair and/or from a duly-licensed location is strictly prohibited.

Because of the great interest in the safety and orderly movement of large crowds and vehicular traffic flow, any activity engaging or impeding the fair-going public or interrupting the orderly flow of the fair-going public outside of an approved, licensed and contracted booth space is strictly prohibited.

The Exhibitor’s responsibility can be summed up very simply: “Be a good neighbor.” All exhibitors, regardless of booth size should be given a substantially similar opportunity to present their product or view to the public. Exhibitors serve as an important part of the Fair in celebrating and showcasing Nebraska’s excellence. Our primary audience consists of family and youth. The Nebraska State Fair reserves the right to reject or restrict any exhibit and/or contents that contain graphic or obscene material or are otherwise objectionable to the family-oriented target audience of the Fair. The Nebraska State Fair Board has sole discretion to determine whether any content or material is graphic, obscene, or objectionable to the family-oriented target audience.
