Held in either late June or early July, the annual Wisner Jr. Livestock Show and Wisner Lions Club Rodeo are hits in this part of Nebraska.
The livestock show features plenty of 4-H competitions for kids, a hot dog eating contest, a barbecue, a road rally, a poker run, junk wars, and plenty of other activities, as well as top musical entertainment.
The rodeo involves two shows that take place the Friday and Saturday of the Jr. Livestock Show. Top local and area cowboys take part in McKay Rodeo competition. The event features a Saturday drawing in which one lucky ticket-holder drives off in a new vehicle. Also featured are the famous Lions Club burgers, which are grilled and served both nights.
