The Lancaster County Super Fair, held at the Lancaster Event Center Fairgrounds, is produced by the Lancaster County Agricultural Society. Lancaster County 4-H (part of Nebraska Extension in Lancaster County) partners with the Ag Society to produce the 4-H exhibits, events & activities during Super Fair.

The 4-H Food Stand at the Lancaster County Super Fair is Lancaster County 4-H Council’s primary fundraiser. 4-H Council asks clubs and independent members to help by staffing a shift. At the fair, support 4-H by ordering from the 4-H food stand, which features a variety of snacks, beverages and of course, the popular Walking Taco!
