Annual Winter Festival

Americana’s 25th annual Winter Festival is a special evening for the families of Americana to get family portraits, play games, decorate cookies, and visit Santa. Over 300 children and their families will be part of this event on Friday, December 16th from 5:00pm-8:00pm, and we need your help!

Americana in the Brackets For Good Tournament!

What a success! Thanks for helping us move through two rounds of the Brackets for Good tournament! We raised over $850 during those two weeks with your help. Thanks for supporting Americana Community Center!


This March, Americana Community Center is part of Brackets for Good, a single-elimination, competitive fundraising tournament…with the chance to win $10,000! But we need your help.

Here’s how it works:

$1 donated to Americana Community Center on the Brackets for Good website = 1 point

More points scored than our opposition= Advancement to the next week-long round

All money donated to score points goes to Americana Community Center. And if we win the tournament, scoring more points than the other Louisville non-profits, we win $10,000!


The first round begins 2/27/15 and we can’t do this alone! We need you to spread the news,  follow the play-by-play on our Facebook page, and donate at to help us win points!
