Special Thanks

Mayor Jean Stothert & Downtown Omaha Inc. Foundation would like to thank everyone who makes the Holiday Lights Festival possible, especially to our media sponsors, KETV Channel 7 and Star 104.5; and our event sponsor, Conagra Brands.

Each year, the Holiday Lights Festival grows and improves, with hundreds of thousands of patrons viewing the spectacular lighting display, as well as increased awareness and donations towards the “Shine the Light on Hunger” campaign. Annually, nearly 100,000 people attend the Holiday Lights Festival activities throughout the weeks between November 25 and January 5, and, in 2018, Conagra Brands and the community collected more than 45,000 pounds of food and raised over $712,000 during the campaign, the equivalent of more than 2.1 million meals donated to Food Bank for the Heartland. None of this would be possible without our generous sponsors!

We are proud to be a holiday tradition for many and to assist with easing such a critical need at the same time. We appreciate your support and wish you and your family a cheerful holiday season!
