OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - The Omaha Summer Arts Festival has announced its 2022 dates and its new location.

Celebrating its 48th anniversary, the popular tradition will return with a live event on June 10-12, 2022 at Aksarben Village.

“The Omaha Summer Arts Festival is excited to move to Aksarben Village for a number of reasons. With great amenities, ample free parking, exceptional green space and a more central location, we believe Aksarben Village will be the ideal new home for the Festival,” said Executive Director Vic Gutman.

OSAF explored returning to its’ long-standing Downtown location, but was unable to work out the logistics due to ongoing development and changes in street closure permits.

In 2021, the Festival introduced a hybrid format that included a series of mural cubes and pop-up concerts. Organizers say there are plans to expand that project and to explore additional options to offer arts programming well beyond the traditional three-day festival.

Artist applications are now open.

The OSAF is encouraging applications from Omaha and Nebraska based artists by offering a 50% discount on the jury fee.

Artists who apply before December 1, 2021, and use the code ‘aksarben’ will be able to apply for only $15.
