Something is Always Happening in Kearney

Sponsored Content

Every year, Kearney hosts more than 1,350 events. Conventions, trade shows, meetings, and sporting events, every day something is happening.

One simple reason why so many events are held in Kearney is that Kearney has the best meeting facilities between Omaha and Denver.

With the completion of the brand new Younes Conference Center North, Younes Campus now offers an additional 75,000 square feet of meeting space. The flexible meeting spaces, multiple pre-function areas, and state-of-the-art facilities make Younes Conference Center North a premier meeting venue in the Midwest. Younes Conference Center North also includes a brand new Crowne Plaza with an indoor water park, Fyre Grill & Spirits, Y Boutique, and Starbucks.

Conveniently located right off of I-80, and with air service from Denver and Chicago, Kearney is easy to get to for anyone in the Midwest or Front Range area. From theatrical performances to comedians to concerts big and small, shows of all sorts can be seen in Kearney at The Viaero Center and Merryman Performing Arts Center.

If you’re looking for some barbeque or sushi, a steak house, or maybe a bakery, you’ll find it downtown. Downtown Kearney is the hub of locally owned businesses and exciting seasonal events. From boutiques to barbershops, murals to museums, taphouses to theater, find it ‘On the Bricks.’

With ample parking and ease of access, attendees can unwind or catch a breath of fresh air at one of many outdoor facilities in Kearney. Walk, bike, and enjoy the sights in Yanney Park, Cottonmill Park & Recreation Area, and the Kearney Hike & Bike Trail.
