Husker Harvest Days to bring big economic boost to rural Nebraska

This year’s Husker Harvest Days will be held in Grand Island Nebraska from September 12-14, 2023.

Husker Harvest Days is the world’s largest working farm show showcasing all the latest agriculture has to offer—and it brings in some serious cash to the local economy.

The three-day event brings in roughly $9 million to rural Nebraska, according to organizers. Those dollars help fill hotels, restaurants, and businesses.

The show brings in 500 exhibitors and around 100,000 attendees. Those visitors spend more than $100 each night at hotels and more than $60 per day on food and transportation.
