State Fair Round-Up

Nebraska State Fair Executive Director Rick Bjorklund announced his resignation last week and is taking a similar position with the Tulsa State Fair in Oklahoma, effective June 1st.

The Tulsa fair is scheduled to run September 28th through October 8th. Bjorklund’s assistant at the Nebraska State Fair, Joe McDermott, will handle his former duties on an interim basis until a replacement is found.

It is uncertain if the succeeding executive director will be hired before the next state fair takes place August 25th through September 4th.
