Omaha Performing Arts hosted its first live program in 6 months the weekend of Sept. 25 and 26. While facilities were closed down due to COVID-19, Omaha Performing Arts began planning a new way to present the concerts.

On Friday night, the Swon Brothers performed. During Saturday afternoon, the Omaha Circus Arts performed along with Root Marm Chicken Farm, African Culture Connection, and Marcos & Sabor. Later that night, Bassel and The Supernaturals with Mesonjixx finished off the weekend. 

Attendees wore masks and socially distanced throughout the event.
