Blue Gold Community Showcase for 2020 will look different than other years. For this time only UNK students, campus and community exhibitors will be invited to celebrate the start of a new school year and welcome freshmen and returning students to campus. We love all of Kearney, but because of safety concern the general public is not asked to attend this year.

The event, part of Blue Gold Welcome Week each August, features food, games, prizes and entertainment. Dozens of campus organizations and local businesses take part in the festival, which also includes a picnic hosted by UNK Chancellor Doug Kristensen.

Blue Gold Showcase is a chance for students to connect with the community, make new friends and begin establishing that Loper pride.
