Since the state's early history, Nebraska's plentiful and expansive prairies have helped feed its people and fuel its economic growth. However, Nebraska offers far more to its residents and tourists than just endless cornfields. The state's largest cities, including Omaha and Lincoln, feature a number of regular cultural attractions, including art exhibitions, music festivals, concerts and more.

This unique event occurs during the last weekend in September and consists of dozens of mid-state communities located in a predetermined 300-mile circular area.
