Celebrate with us!
Papillion 150 is celebrating this milestone with a calendar of great events for residents of all ages and a number of projects and initiatives to honor our history and strengthen the bonds of our community.
A Party 150 Years in the Making
Papillion 150 is our community’s celebration of Papillion’s sesquicentennial, its 150th anniversary. Papillion was founded in 1870 as a railroad town on the Union Pacific Main Line. Fast-forward 150 years and Papillion is a strong, vibrant community — one of the best places live in the country.
Please explore this site to learn about our upcoming events and projects. Visit our Get Involved page if you would like to participate on the Papillion 150 committee or if you or your organization would like to create and sponsor your own Papillion 150 event or project.

The Butterfly Effect
Papillion 150 and the Bianchi Family are excited to bring the Butterfly Effect to our community. As part of Papillion 150, Butterfly Effect Social Butterfly Installations — large butterfly murals — will be created throughout Papillion.
