For nearly 45 years, community members, local history buffs, rendezvousers, and promoters of Northwest Nebraska’s rich heritage, have gathered annually to create a celebration unlike any other.
Fur Trade Days, Inc. is a 501(c)3 Membership Corporation whose purpose is to produce a regional event celebrating the history of the fur trade in Northwest Nebraska. It is governed by a seven member volunteer Board, which donates their time, ideas, and vision to ensure the success of the organization.
