10 a.m.-2 p.m.

Bringing together local producers and artisans, live entertainment, food vendors, games, IANR’s world-leading ag research and the Lincoln community, the East Campus Discovery Days and Farmers Market truly has something for everyone. Once a month during the summer, you can head down to East Campus to take in all this amazing new event has to offer — and it will certainly take more than one trip to experience it all.

Visit Nebraska’s Natural Wonders

Robber’s Cave is just a short drive from campus, while Indian Cave State Park and Chimney Rock make for a perfect long weekend destination.
