OMAHA FUNFEST 2020 – Now Virtual and Online!

OMAHA FUNFEST 2020 

Due to the developments of the COVID-19 concerns in our community, it has become clear that the Autism Society of Nebraska must cancel the Omaha Funfest, scheduled for April 18, 2020, at the Ralston Arena.  We are sure you share in our disappointment.

Our autism community does not stop for the Coronavirus!  While we may not be able to come together in-person to celebrate and support each other,  we will still come together on April 18th, LIVE, and ONLINE at the VIRTUAL Omaha Funfest 2020! (FUN AND COMMUNITY WITHOUT THE GERMS!)  Details coming soon!   

All current registrations will be converted to Virtual registrations, and great news, we will be mailing your t-shirts on May 2nd!  Each year, funds raised through the Omaha Funfest fuels over half of the work we do in the Omaha area alone and supports activities and initiatives across the state.   We want to urge you to continue fundraising, and encouraging others to join the Virtual Omaha Funfest 2020. This event is vital to our success throughout the year.   

We are very grateful for the kind words and support that we have received from so many of you. We all share a common goal to continue the mission of the Autism Society of Nebraska – to improve the lives of ALL affected by autism.  We are in this together.
