Germantown, Wisconsin is a great place to live. That’s the theme behind this year’s Taste of Germantown celebration in Firemen’s Park, Thursday evening, July 25. from 5 PM to 9 PM. A Taste of Germantown, the Germantown Kiwanis Club’s annual Party in the Park, has become an annual event for Germantown community families.
This year’s event will have lots of extra activities for Germantown youngsters, from rock climbing to games in the park compliments of Germantown Parks & Recreation. As always, there will be dozens of vendors providing interesting cuisine and beverages for Germantown residents. In essense, it is a party in the park on a summer evening … lots of good music at the Gehl’s Performing Arts Pavilion and a chance to enjoy wholesome family entertainment with your neighbors.
Taste of Germantown has turned into an annual event for all Germantown residents to enjoy food and fun in the park as local restaurants and eateries present some of their fine fair, and local entertainment groups show off Germantown’s talents. First Bank Financial Centre, here in Germantown, is the featured sponsor for the event. Their participation has allowed us to expand our offerings making this year’s event a family friendly activity. A children’s play area, including a bounce house, sensory tables, crafts and children’s activities have all been planned for the evening.
Last year they estimated about 3,000 people were in attendance. It is anticipated that this year’s events will draw even more attendees due to the participation of the Germantown Park & Rec department. They have activities planned for children of all ages during the day and evening in the park.
The Germantown Kiwanis Club officially turned the Gehl’s Performing Arts Pavilion over to the Village of Germantown during a ceremony featured during last year’s Taste of Germantown. It was the culmination of eight years of planning and fund raising to build the pavilion in Firemen’s Park. The project was promoted and funded through the Germantown Kiwanis Club. The Kiwanis Club built the pavilion for the benefit of the residents of the Village of Germantown.
