Nebraska Life Statehood Day Party

March 1, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Celebrate Nebraska’s 150th birthday at Nebraska Life Magazine’s 2017 Statehood Day party on March 1. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. we’ll celebrate Nebraska pride. Here is a brief listing of the day’s events:


  • See John Tooker’s scale model Nebraska Capitol built from thousands of Lego blocks. On display from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • At 12:30 p.m. we’ll unveil our new license plate art work made from Nebraska license plates from the readers of Nebraska Life.
  • At 12:45 Norfolk High School trumpeters Ethan Carlson and Thomas Wisnieski will lead us in singing our state song, Beautiful Nebraska.
  • At 1 p.m. Norfolk Mayor Josh Moening will say a few words.
  • At 1:15 we will blow out the candles on the World’s Largest Nebraska-shaped Big Red velvet cake. How big is it? Stop in and find out. You don’t want to miss this world record cake. Please stop in for a selfie with this behemoth and then try a taste – there will be plenty for everyone.


  • And enjoy special pricing – including $18.67 Nebraska Life subscriptions (that’s a savings of more than $5) all day long. And get your very own limited edition Nebraska Life long-sleeve T-shirt while supplies last.


Please join us for a slice of the Good Life (and a slice or three of our soon to be famous cake).
