How do I get to the Fashion Tent? The Fashion Tent is a 22,000 square foot tent in the Capitol District. We are located in the parking lot across Capitol Street from DJ’s Dugout in Downtown Omaha. Trust us, you can’t miss it! You can access the tent by going north on 12th St. off of Capitol and turning right on to Davenport. You must show a ticket to the attendant to enter Davenport. Your ticket can either be printed or shown on your smart phone. The parking attendant will have no way to look up your ticket, so please have yours ready.

What do I wear? You will see everything from LBDs to evening gowns, jeans to suits at our event. If you happen to be one of our VIP ticket holders, we encourage you to dress it up a bit more because you will be in runway photos that will be posted all over our website, social media channels and in our magazine. What would you wear if you knew thousands of people would be would be seeing your beautiful mug in our pictures until the end of time? Plus, all attendees will get to strike a pose on the Borsheims Red Carpet!

What’s up with the parking situation? There is plenty of FREE PARKING in lots surrounding the Fashion Tent. Can you tell we are excited about this?? Thanks to the Capitol District for hooking our fashion fans up! Please do not leave valuables in your car. OFW is not responsible for lost or stolen items. VIP guests have complimentary valet parking near the front door of tent. Just pull up to the Borsheims Red Carpet and show your VIP ticket to the valet (either printed or on your smart phone) to receive complimentary valet parking. Reserved ticket holders can pay a $15.00 fee to use valet or self-park for free. Parking is available on the West side of Lot G and in Lot H. The parking attendant on 12th & Davenport can direct you to the appropriate place.

What happens after the show? Attendees are welcome to stick around in the reception area for celebratory drinks during weeknight shows. Rockbottom Brewery is also offering 20% off food and drinks before and after OFW events, so we hope you’ll make plans to stop by and chow down during the week!

What's this about an Official Afterparty? On Saturday, August 23 immediately following the Finale, we will have the Official OFW After Party in the Fashion Tent. All Finale ticket holders receive complimentary access to this event. You can buy After Party tickets here: http://omahafashionweek.ticketleap.com/official-ofw-afterparty/
