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. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

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!
