Stock Show

Celebrating Nebraska Agriculture since 1927.

Celebrate Nebraska’s Agricultural heritage every year and have a great time doing it! Our vision is to conduct a world-class 4-H exposition and raise money for scholarships, among other things.

The 94th Aksarben Stock Show will be held Sept 24-26, 2021, at Fonner Park, Grand Island, Nebraska.

  • The Aksarben Foundation is proud to present the Aksarben Stock Show, which was owned and operated by the Aksarben Foundation for over 90 years. Today the Stock Show is managed and produced by the Nebraska State Fair and is open to youth exhibitors and also features a national livestock judging contest.

    The beef, sheep and goat shows are held at the Five Points Bank Arena in the Nebraska Farm Bureau Show Ring. The swine show is held in the Aurora Cooperative Pavilion. Youth from Arkansas, Colorado, Kansas, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota, Montana, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin and Wyoming are eligible to show.

    The Aksarben Stock Show’s vision is to:

    • Conduct a world-class youth livestock exposition.
    • Educate youth on production agriculture.
    • Raise funds for the Aksarben Grand Drive, awarded through scholarships and monetary awards.
    • Create a fun environment where families and youth compete and build life long friendships.
