The Epic Outdoor Food Fest In Nebraska You Simply Cannot Miss

Nebraska’s many, many outdoor festivals fill the calendar from the first warm weekend to the first snow. Some of our favorites are the festivals that focus on food, and the Central Plains Ribfest in Holdrege (in Phelps County) is one that no one should miss.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

The 2017 Central Plains Ribfest and the 28th annual Swedish Days Festival will take place in Holdrege on June 16th and 17th. There are events all weekend all throughout the town. Find out more from the Holdrege Area Chamber of Commerce or the event’s Facebook page.

Another classic Nebraska festival is coming up on Memorial Day weekend – the Callaway Kite Flight!
