Lincoln Welcoming Week 2023 Brings in Thousands

Lincoln Welcoming Week 2023 was our biggest yet featuring 23 events! Partners included city, county, and nonprofit entities, as well as small businesses and individuals.

Welcoming Week is an annual series of events inviting all of Lincoln to celebrate the rich cultural diversity of our city. Events throughout Welcoming Week and beyond share food, music, stories, and traditions recognizing the value that diversity offers to all who call Lincoln home.
