Sarpy County and its five communities have many opportunities to celebrate throughout the summer. On every corner you may stumble upon a parade, street dance or cookout.

Held annually the last full weekend in July, Gretna Days features kiddie rides, booths, a parade, a street dance, a picnic or a fireman's softball tournament.

Every June, La Vista Days features a carnival with a parade, cookout, golf tournament, fireworks display and celebrity softball tournament.

Papillion Days is among the oldest county festivals and the grand parade is the largest in the county. The celebration in June features a midway, concessions and many cultural events.

Springfield Days, also held in June, offers a parade, arts and crafts, dances and food vendors.

Last but not least is the Sarpy County Fair, held every August at the county fairgrounds in Springfield. This grand celebration features a midway, rodeos, exhibits, competitions, live entertainment, dances, a petting zoo, parades and concessions.

Every Thanksgiving weekend Sarpy County kicks off the holiday season with Old German Christmas held in Papillion. This traditional Old World celebration is held at the historic John Sautter farmhouse in downtown Papillion. The arrival of Santa Claus in a horse-drawn sleigh and many decorated trees are some of the many highlights for the weekend.

Also held in November, usually the Sunday following Thanksgiving, is Olde Towne Christmas in Bellevue. A number of activities are available for kids and adults, including a special appearance by Santa Claus and lighting of the Christmas Tree in Washington Park.
