Gretna Days 2020 is scheduled for July 24th to 26th
It is with sad hearts we announce that the 60th annual Gretna Days will look dramatically different from past years. The Gretna Days Board wants nothing more than to bring you a traditional Gretna Days experience but at present the state of Nebraska directed health measures do not allow us to proceed with large gatherings and the thought of offering events that could pose a health risk to the community have caused us to scale back this year’s events. Therefore we will not be hosting the carnival, golf tournament, dance/beer garden, high school pool party, craft fair, kids pedal tractor pull, or Sunday picnic and rides.
At this time, we will kick off the weekend with the traditional fireworks. Although the location has changed, we expect a fabulous show! The parade is organized by the Gretna Chamber and their board is considering parade options and hoping to find a solution that will be fun, safe and within current state guidelines. They tell us to expect more information on the parade by June 5th. The Gretna Days Foundation plans to organize online events such as online raffles, online contests, online giveaways, past citizen of the year interviews, and a photo memories tribute to past years. We also hope to host a virtual craft fair with exhibitors showcasing their products throughout the weekend.
Gretna Days weekend has many other events not associated with the Gretna Days Foundation. We expect updated news about those events as information is released from the sponsoring groups.
