We now know where Lori Cox, the former General Manager of the Big Sky Country State Fair, is headed. The Nebraska State Fair Board has announced that it has hired Cox as their Executive Director. 

Words cannot begin to express just how excited I am about this opportunity,” said Lori Cox, Executive Director, Nebraska State Fair. “The Nebraska State Fair has a long, rich history of providing an entertaining and educational venue that showcases the people, talent and products of Nebraska. I believe there’s an opportunity to build upon this heritage, while accelerating the steady growth that the Fair has seen, particularly in recent years. I look forward to working with the staff, Fair partners, the community of Grand Island and the people of Nebraska.”

In a press release, the Nebraska State Fair noted that Cox was an innovative and creative thinker, and is highly regarded within the fair industry and has received numerous awards and recognition for her work. But then, we knew that already.

We were lucky to have Lori here in Bozeman. If you are a fan of the free country concerts that the Big Sky Country State Fair offers us each summer, those were her brainchild.

Good luck Lori, you will be missed here in Bozeman!
