How will you celebrate JoJo Siwa Day? The Nickelodeon superstar, YouTube personality, singer, dancer, entrepreneur, social media influencer and New York Times bestselling author is getting her own holiday in Omaha!


JoJo Siwa may be a global social media star and a pop singer and oversee a fashion empire, but she’s also a teenager from Omaha in Nebraska.

And when she returns for a concert on Tuesday, August 6, 2019 at Baxter Arena, she’ll do so on JoJo Siwa Day!

Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert plans to declare the day in honor of JoJo, according to her publicist.

Siwa, 16, was born in Omaha to parents Tom and Jess Siwa.

JoJo Siwa Reacts to Hometown's 'JoJo Siwa Day'


The Nickelodeon star & Omaha native expresses her excitement for the day that's been dedicated to her. Plus, hear about JoJo's character in the new film "Angry Birds 2."

After quickly realizing she had a love for dance at age two, Siwa began taking classes in tap, jazz, hip hop and ballet. She auditioned for season two of Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition and became the youngest contestant at eight years old on the show. Following that success, she was then called to join Lifetime’s number-one show Dance Moms. In 2016, JoJo signed a licensing agreement with Nickelodeon, and in 2017, signed an overall talent deal with Nickelodeon, which has seen the star feature in hit Nickelodeon shows such as School of Rock and The Thundermans and star in Nickelodeon's Lip Sync Battle Shorties opposite Nick Cannon and the Nickelodeon Original Movie Blurt! with Jace Norman (Henry Danger), in addition to her two own specials, JoJo Siwa: My World and JoJo's Dream Birthday, and own animated web-series The JoJo & BowBow Show Show, starring JoJo and her beloved dog, BowBow. Known for her love of bows, JoJo has sold more than 35 million bows worldwide.

Siwa performed at Nickelodeon’s 2018 Kids’ Choice Awards and has won two blimps: for Favorite Viral Music Artist in 2017, Musical YouTube Creator in 2018, and Favorite Social Music Star in 2019. Last summer, she performed at Nickelodeon’s 2018 Kids’ Choice Awards Mexico. JoJo Siwa has also performed for two years in a row at Nickelodeon SLIMEFEST in the UK (2017 and 2018) and Nickelodeon SlimeFest in the USA (2018 and 2019).

Siwa connects with her fans through many channels: via social media, where she currently has over 8.4 million followers on Instagram, over 17.5 million followers on TikTok, 430,000 Twitter followers, almost 580,000 likes on Facebook, and on YouTube, over 10 million subscribers with over 2.3 billion views; through her SIWANATORZ club, which stands against negativity and bullying; through her global reach of consumer products including her signature bows, accessories, apparel, arts and crafts, cosmetics, home goods and party supplies; and with her hugely popular singles, “Boomerang,” which has been viewed almost 709 million times and is RIAA certified platinum, “Kid in a Candy Store” which is RIAA certified gold, “Hold The Drama,” and “D.R.E.A.M.” JoJo has released 2 EP’s Celebrate released in April, with songs such as “It’s Time To Celebrate,” “#1U,” “Worldwide Party” and “Bop!”, and D.R.E.A.M. The Music, which was released in November last year.

JoJo’s line of giant, brightly-colored hair bows might be why parents know her best. They’re sold at numerous retailers along with other accessories, clothes, books and toys, and they stem from the teen’s love of bright colors and glitter.

JoJo’s 80-city “D.R.E.A.M.” tour will also come to Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln on Saturday, Aug. 24. Tickets to both Nebraska performances are available via Ticketmaster.
