KETV Drive-Through Family Festival

Enjoy a Free and Festive Drive-Through Experience (no foot traffic)!
WHEN: Sunday, December 5, 2021 | 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.
WHERE: Omaha Police Mounted Patrol Barn – 615 Leavenworth Street

To keep the community safe, the Family Festival, presented by KETV Channel 7, will once again be held as a festive drive-through experience (no foot traffic) at the Omaha Police Mounted Patrol Barn!

Traditionally, the Family Festival takes place at a variety of Omaha’s leading downtown attractions with a trolley service to connect sites. Once again this year, out of an abundance of caution, the event has been reinvented as a drive-through.

The event will take place at the Omaha Police Mounted Patrol Barn and guests should approach the Patrol Barn from Leavenworth Street. Though different from previous years, hands-on activities will still be part of the event. The drive-through experience will include picking up craft kits to do as a family, holiday characters and Santa, Police Officers on their horses, and holiday entertainment – all in the warmth and safety of your vehicle. Children under 10 years old will receive one free book, courtesy of Omaha Public Library. CLICK HERE for the Drive-Through Family Festival map!

Help feed the community! Volunteers will be on hand to collect food donations for the Shine the Light on Hunger campaign, so bring nonperishable food with you if you wish to contribute. All contributions are greatly appreciated! CLICK HERE to learn more about Shine the Light on Hunger.

Many of the Organizations that participated in 2020 will still participate in 2021, the difference is that the event will only take place at the Omaha Police Mounted Patrol Barn as a drive-through experience – no foot traffic (all organizations below will be participating in the event at the Omaha Police Mounted Patrol Barn).
