Maha Music Festival
Meet us at Maha Music Festival at Stinson Park in Aksarben Village on Saturday, August 16, noon to dusk
(music goes 'til midnight). Maha is a homegrown and volunteer-run nonprofit festival that brings together national, regional, and local indie and rock artists for a day of food, community, and music. Joslyn and the Kent Bellows Mentoring Program are proud to return to the festival's Community Village, a place for fans to find engaging alternative entertainment presented by many of Omaha's awesome non-profit organizations. Join us to see the fun, interactive project we've come up with this year - and to get busy!
