Sandhills Ranch Expo in Bassett NE hosts the "Largest Ranch Oriented Trade Show" in the United States. A large Variety of Vendors, farmers and ranchers come to exhibit or view new technology and enterprises at the Ranch Expo. This year 2016 will be no exception. The legend will continue in Bassett with the "Sandhills Ranch Expo" scheduled for June 15th and 16th at the Rock County Fairgrounds in conjunction with the large craft show at Rock County High school.

The great thing's FREE to view!!! The Sandhills Ranch Expo offers something for everyone.  It is an excellent opportunity to see first-hand the state of the art ranching equipment and more. From cattle and cattle chutes, ATV's to livestock feed dealers, from sunglasses to toy vendors, to arts and crafts and quilted handiwork...the list just goes on and on. 

There is a huge selection of great food -- tender prime rib or steak sandwiches, some of the best barbecue around, funnel cakes, bloomin' onions, walking tacos, turkey legs and fried Oreos and beverages for all. The well-shaded beer garden is manned by the Bassett Country Club.

The Wednesday night entertainment will begin with the "Roughstock Challenge." Riders will have to ride bareback, saddlebronc, and bullriding which will provide first class entertainment for the entire family. Following the bull riding the band "Side Step" will be playing in the beer garden.

A shuttle service will once again be provided for transportation from the the high school...and downtown. There is also plenty of extra parking at the Rock County High School, or at the Bassett Livestock Auction.  So...DON'T WALK  Let us shuttle you where you want to go while you're in Bassett attending the Expo!
