If you’re passionate about the arts, you and your family will discover that we offer a full roster of exciting events all year long. No matter where you’re from—Council Bluffs, Omaha or surrounding areas—you’ll find the Hoff Family Arts and Culture Center and other venues will keep you happily entertained with live concerts, plays, art exhibits, ballet, museums and more. There’s no end to the entertainment possibilities.

Bayliss Park, Council Bluffs

June 12 - July 26

Music & Movies in the Park is a free, 6-week series, of family-friendly summer fun! A broad, far-reaching audience flocks to these weekly events from surrounding communities in Pottawattamie County and beyond including the Omaha, Bellevue and Papillion areas. Both events are hosted in beautiful Bayliss Park. Families not only enjoy the concerts and films, but also the Bayliss fountain, interactive water feature, touchable art and Veterans’ Memorial Wall. Audiences can bring their own lawn chairs or picnic blankets and enjoy the live entertainment for free. The artistic canopy over the stage, “Oculus”, created by sculptor Brower Hatcher, tops off the atmosphere for this family-friendly, cultural experience.


Special thanks to our sponsors! Without the support of Sherry Galvani Bills-Taylor; Veridian Credit Union; Arlo Burk - American Family Insurance Agent; TS Bank; Availa Bank; O Con & Western Iowa Mutual Insurance, none of this would be possible!
