New American Arts Festival

August 2, 2019 @ 5:00 pm

The New Americans Art Festival (NAAF), a collaboration of Lutheran Family Services of Nebraska (LFS) and Benson First Friday (BFF), is a celebration of new American arts and culture, featuring art and performances from both new Americans and local Omaha artists.

In its sixth year, the festival will feature exciting food, workshops, music, art, handmade goods, and entertainment from around the world. The festival provides artists with an opportunity to share their craft with the community and offers patrons a view into the wealth of diverse cultures that call Omaha home.
