DRIVING TOURISM TO OMAHA

We are proud to have received the prestigious 2023 Henry Fonda Award, NE's highest tourism award. This award represents our leadership, vision, and dedication to the tourism industry. Marcos Eduardo Mora, our esteemed leader, received the award from Nebraska Tourism Director John Ricks and Lt. Gov. Joe Kelly. With Marcos at the helm, Cinco de Mayo Omaha has grown to become the largest local event in Omaha and one of the top three events in the State of Nebraska.
