BENSON DAYS

Benson Days, held each July, is a one-day, family friendly summer festival that celebrates the neighborhood’s creative culture. Activities include a pancake breakfast, parade, street festival featuring dozens of vendors, art, live music, children’s activities and more.

The 2017 event, set for Saturday, July 29, and hosted by the Benson Neighborhood Association, will commemorate the neighborhood’s 130th anniversary. Benson was founded in 1887 by Erastus Benson, a land speculator, investor and philanthropist. First called Benson Place, Benson was annexed into the City of Omaha in 1917.

Proceeds from Benson Days support neighborhood projects.
Benson Days is proud to be an official event of Nebraska 150, a yearlong celebration involving a wide variety of programs and projects across the state.
