The Heartland Events Center stands at the hub of an impressive complex of facilities at Fonner Park in Grand Island, Nebraska.
The Nebraska State Fair relocated to Grand Island in 2010, bringing with it a breathtaking array of new structures and facilities. The new facilities serve the Nebraska State Fair during August and September each year—and are available for livestock shows, sales and auctions, competitions, and dozens of other activities the remainder of the year.
The entire complex is managed by the professional staff at Fonner Park, which means you have one point of contact for the facilities, regardless of which area or how many buildings you need for your event.
