Did you perform on or attend the Good Fellows Show Wagon anytime between the 1950s and early 2000s?

Omaha Mobile Stage would love to reminisce with you on your memories!

Beginning in 1952 and lasting for 59 years, the City of Omaha Parks Department operated the Good Fellows Show Wagon as a youth talent competition. In its heyday in the 1970s, the Show Wagon drew hundreds of contestants and thousands of audience members from the Omaha area and beyond. 

Among many who grew up, raised families and aged in the city during this time, it was a memorable and cherished feature of community life.

Omaha Mobile Stage is reviving the Good Fellows Show Wagon concept with a focus on community, public health, education and economic recovery for artists. Omaha Mobile Stage will begin touring in Spring 2022 after the designbuild phase has been completed this December.
