Come summertime, you can’t think of Omaha without thinking of the NCAA College World Series (CWS). The annual tournament blends America’s favorite pastime with Omaha’s flair for celebration (and food). Locals look forward to it all year and baseball fans reserve their spots at games, in hotels, and at tailgates months in advance.
If you’re anything like us, you’re probably counting down the days until game time. But don’t let your excitement for baseball make you miss out on everything our city has to offer! The first game isn’t until Saturday, June 17, but events kick off earlier. Use our guide to find details on the events during the CWS, the best food in the area, and even events taking place outside of the tournament!
