Earlier this year, One Omaha brought together a group of passionate community leaders from all around Omaha to form the steering committee for a third annual local neighborhoods conference. The committee, a group with diverse backgrounds, interests, and experiences, wanted to do something that was different, fun, and not necessarily confined to the norms of a standard conference. Their ideas have taken form in the creation of Omaha NeighborFest: Activating People, Places, and Spaces.
Omaha NeighborFest is a day long outdoor festival that includes live music, educational workshops, demonstration projects, interactive public art, voter registration, vendors, and mini-grant project pitches. The festival will be Sunday, September 2nd from 12pm-9pm along the North 24th Street Corridor, with the intersection of 24th and Burdette Street as a center point. NeighborFest is being presented in partnership with the Omaha Economic Development Corporation, the North 24th Street Corridor Alliance, the Long School Neighborhood Association, Rabble Mill, Black Votes Matter, and Hear Nebraska, with possible partner additions in the works. We invite you to join us and please extend our invitation to your friends, family, and neighbors.
We are currently accepting NeighborFest sponsorships, vendor applications, and workshop proposals.
