Although Labor Day marks the “official” end of summer, there’s still a lot to do in Phelps County. In addition to the Labor Day celebrations - and there are many - September is when school and sports get back into full swing. It’s the best time of year to drop by the Farmer’s Market, a weekly event with live music, a variety of food offerings and an abundance of provender.
September also marks the beginning of the hunting season in Phelps County, with the fall season for turkey and special permits for antelope and deer available on the 15th and for elk on the 29th. Phelps County is a central location for a lot of Nebraska’s best hunting.
