More than 120 years ago the Legislature put the State Fair in Lincoln permanently. Well, permanently until 2010, when the fair moved to Grand Island.
This year, the University of Nebraska’s Innovation Campus, which sprouted on the fairgrounds site, marks 10 years. It’s been a decade of growth and transformation. And it’s a fitting metaphor that the State Fair, rooted in tradition and the state’s rich agricultural heritage, gave way to complex focused on technology, invention and public-private partnerships that are likely a large part of the future of higher education and business development.
