The Omaha Entertainment & Arts Awards (OEAA) recognizes some of the most talented artists and entertainers in the Omaha area. Voting for the awards is separated into three genres: Visual Arts, Performing Arts and Live Music.

The annual OEAA Summer Showcase features over 100 local artists, comedians and musicians in various venues throughout one neighborhood over one weekend. One band or artist at the OEAA Summer Showcase is voted on by the public to open the Maha Music Festival.

The annual Omaha Entertainment & Arts Awards ceremony honors supreme talent from the performing arts, visual arts and music. The show features live performances from current OEAA nominees and announces the winners in each of the 45 OEAA categories.
