Nebraska State Fair Announces New Food Choices For 2019

Your taste buds will be buzzing at the 2019 Nebraska State Fair. Several new mouth-watering foods are on tap for the 11-day event that begins Aug. 23.

“We have fantastic concerts, activities and competitions, but food is always a top attraction at Nebraska State Fair,” said Nebraska State Fair Executive Director Lori Cox. “Our new additions like the dilly dog, maple bacon mini donuts or a refreshing pineapple whip piña colada are sure to be on your must-try list.”

Here’s a look at the new foods that will be dished up at the Fair:
