Miracle on Farnam

Opera Omaha is excited to be one of 14 creative non-profit organizations participating in “Miracle on Farnam”. This is a wonderful opportunity to be part of public holiday displays in Midtown Crossing. As part of this season-long celebration of holiday cheer, each participant designs and installs a window display to showcase the mission and activities of the organization.

This free public event commences on Thursday, November 15 at dusk with the annual lighting of the Midtown Crossing holiday lights and presentation of the windows. Be part of the action! After visiting the displays, you can vote for your favorite either online at or at any Midtown Crossing merchant. The winning organization receives a check for $3,000 and bragging rights.

The participant list is impressive! We can’t wait to see how each of the creative minds from the list below visually express the organization’s mission.
