Community Events

The Papillion Community Foundation hosts several major community events each year.

Papillion Days – This annual tradition dates back 65 years and includes four fun days, including:  carnival rides, live music, family entertainment,  food and shopping in Papillion’s City Park.  This event is always held over Father’s Day weekend and runs from Thursday – Sunday.    Visit the official site for Papillion Days for more information.

Winter Wonderland – Kick off your holiday season with this warm, small town event held in downtown Papillion. Join us as we light the downtown lights and celebrate the season with fun and free activities including: carriage rides, hot chocolate and popcorn, visits with Santa, photos with live reindeer and many more activities. Get your holiday shopping started by visiting merchants in downtown Papillion with extended business hours.

Holiday Luncheon  – This elegant candle-lit luncheon features more than 30 custom tables that have been uniquely decorated by Papillion-area businesses and organizations. Proceeds from this event are used to support the Winter Wonderland event and ensure that we are able to continue to offer family fun, free of charge.

Veteran’s Day Dinner – This patriotic event was new to the Papillion Community Foundation in 2011. Partnering with the LaVista Community Foundation we are able to offer this dinner and program to area veterans free of charge as our way of thanking them for their commitment to our freedom. If you are interested in attending or supporting this event, please contact the Papillion Community Foundation for more information.
