An overflow crowd of 3,500 people attended last year’s inaugural Omaha Magazine’s Best of Omaha Festival at the Ralston Arena, so we’re making this year’s event even bigger and bolder by moving to the Baxter Arena on Saturday, November 21.

We’ll crown this year’s Best of Omaha winners in a fun-filled day, and every attendee will receive a complimentary copy of our special Best of Omaha issue cataloguing all the winners. The first 1,000 attendees will receive a handsomly stocked swag bag stuffed with goodies, coupons, and more valued at over $100.

Then get busy checking out the vendors, sampling tasty local foods, enjoying the entertainment, and having a cocktail on us (for every ticketed 21+ adult).


You see the iconic Best of Omaha logo all over town, but there’s nothing common about being a Best of Omaha winner. Did you know that only 3% of area businesses earn the distinction of being voted Best of Omaha?

And how do they win that honor? Why, through you! The Best of Omaha is your contest, and, just as in years past, almost 40,000 of you cast a total of almost 700,000 individual votes in everything from pizza to plumbing.

The Best of Omaha booths will be occupied only by contest winners, which guarantees you’ll have a chance to connect with the city’s elite when it comes to delivering award-worthy products, services, value, and customer satisfaction.



The Huskers are dormant that day, so there’s no excuse to miss out on all that Omaha has to offer in this celebration of what makes our city great.

See you there!
