Logan County Fair and Rodeo
The Logan County Fair & Rodeo dates back to 1912. The first annual Harvest Festival and Frontier Sports was held September 25, 26 and 27 of that year.
The sport of rodeo and the western way of life has always been an integral part of Logan County and continues to this day. The rodeo has continued to grow and expand over the years, and lives up to its name, “Nebraska’s Biggest Little Rodeo.” The two-day Stapleton Rodeo features a 2-person ranch team sort, team roping, miniature pony races, wild horse race, mutton bustin’, chicken scramble and ranch rodeo.
The Logan County Fair features 4-H and open class exhibits, and horse, livestock and small animal shows.
A parade goes down main street on Saturday of fair weekend. Foodies can enjoy a pork breakfast on Saturday morning and a Chamber of Commerce sponsored free barbecue later that day.
The Logan County Fairgrounds is also the site of the Logan-McPherson High School Rodeo and the Stapleton Junior Rodeo, both long-standing traditions in the community.
The Logan County Ag Society is proud of the progress being made at the fairgrounds and the construction of a new concession stand is the latest of many improvements to the grounds.

"ONCE IN A LIFETIME INDEED!"
We chose Stapleton for our viewing site, and we want to send many thanks to your community and the organizers for the perfect event. We live in WI and chose your town as part of our road trip through NE and CO, and when we heard about the Logan County Fair, the decision was easy. Thank you for the keeping the fair vendors on site so we could enjoy some delicious BBQ, for the well-organized parking, for the laugh we had about the horse apples near our car, for the roving porta-potty lady, and for the overall celebratory but peaceful atmosphere. Once in a lifetime indeed!
