A new feature could make it easier for you to find your favorite food at the Nebraska State Fair.

Fair staff announced the introduction of a search feature on fairground kiosks Tuesday.

“Each year, our electronic surveys indicate that fair food is a primary reason folks come to the fair. They call it “grazing”, those folks who come to the fair every day to try something new. Let’s face it, it’s a guilty pleasure to dive into a deep fried morsel of goodness,” said Jaime Parr, State Fair facilities director.

“The even better news for our guests is that finding fairgoers favorite fair food will be made easier with our new search feature on the Electronic Kiosks located around the fairgrounds, “Parr said, “simply type in what you’re looking for, and the kiosks will show you where it is. So if you type in corn dog, the kiosk will show you every location that offers corn dogs.”

Fairgoers can also search for entertainment or commercial vendors, NSF staff said.

The Nebraska State Fair has over 60 food vendors. Smoked meat loaf and cowboy mignon have been announced as new foods this year.

“While we always tout the more sinful choices, we should also mention that we have a great selection of healthy foods from our vendors”, Parr said, “And now with the electronic kiosks, it will make it easy to the find the exact meal fair fans are looking for.”

The Nebraska State Fair runs from August 25 to September 4 in Grand Island.
