About NHSFR Lincoln

When the Rodeo Rides to Lincoln

While you’re busy getting ready to qualify for NHSFR, we’re hard at work in Lincoln, Nebraska preparing the Lancaster Event Center (LEC) and the entire community to host the National High School Finals Rodeo in 2020 and 2021.

While the LEC has plenty of indoor space, we’re investing $7 million toward grounds improvements with the NHSFR in mind, including adding more campsites, expanding our outdoor multi-purpose arena and building a new covered grandstand.

With 400,000 square feet of buildings on grassy fairgrounds, at the Lancaster Event Center there’s plenty of room for all parts of the National High School Finals Rodeo.

With over 320 agricultural, equine and people events annually, including organizing the largest county fair in Nebraska, the LEC team is known for providing friendly and professional service. We're proud to have four NHSFR Alums on staff who competed from 1978 to 2017 plus our Operations Directors has worked with 13 National High School Finals Rodeo events. Our staff knows first-hand how it feels to compete and to run shows so we’re committed to providing you an incredible rodeo experience.
