Lunch Program


The Nebraska State Fair is offering a special lunch program for Nebraska’s Largest Classroom participants. Lunch will be available from 11 am to 1 pm. Each lunch costs $2; last year’s lunch consisted of a hot dog, a bag of chips, a dessert, a fruit, and a bottle of water. The lunch items for 2019 are still being determined. There is a limit of one lunch per person. Enclosed is the lunch registration form. Please note that advance registration for the lunch program is required and payment must be received by June 1, 2019. There will be no exceptions to the deadline and no refunds once payment is received.

If you have special dietary needs, wish to not participate in the lunch program, or have older children and feel the lunch items won’t be adequate enough for their growing stomachs; we invite you to bring your own lunch or eat at one of the food vendors at the fairgrounds. There are select vendors who do offer select food items on the grounds at a discount.

Largest Classroom materials, including gate passes, parking permits, field trip guide, and admission wristbands, will be sent the first week in August via certified mail to your school.
