Get out and explore your city! Open Omaha 2023 is here.
OPEN OMAHA IS EVERYONE’S CHANCE TO CATCH A BEHIND-THE-SCENES LOOK AT THE FASCINATING SPACES THAT SHAPE OUR CITY.
Over the weekend of August 5th – 6th, dozens of historic landmarks, creative spaces, sacred sites, and other hidden gems will open their doors in a city-wide showcase of the uniqueness that makes the Omaha-Council Bluffs metro such a marvelous place.
Open Omaha is curated to inspire, built for all-ages, and FREE to attendees and hosts.
Inspired by similar concepts in cities like Denver, Minneapolis, and Chicago, Open Omaha was developed by the nonprofit Omaha by Design and launched in 2022. The inaugural event attracted over 6,000 unique visits to more than 50 venues spread across the metro.
Open Omaha is back for its second year, opening doors to even more amazing spaces.
Mark your calendars for August 5th & 6th, because you won’t want to miss this!
