The 3rd annual Omaha Heritage Festival (OHF), hosted by the Midlands Latino Community Development Corporation in partnership with many other ethnic groups and their respective organizations, will be held on May 18th from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m. at the Lewis and Clark Landing.  OHF was conceived in 2011 to help bring different Nebraska communities together to share the culture, history and heritage of the different ethnic groups that call Omaha their home.  The 2013 OHF will begin with a parade that will proceed north on 10th street to Farnam, then to 8th street and on to Lewis and Clark Landing to begin the festival events at noon.  These events will include children’s and family activities, tents with different exhibits, international food, and live music.

The Midlands Latino Community Development Corporation (MLCDC) seeks to bridge gaps between communities and offer a platform and venue for each community to “speak” to all others through dance, music and other cultural devices.  Also, MLCDC works for economic development of Latinos in the greater Omaha area.  For more information on the Omaha Heritage Festival, you can visit the website at
