The Germantown Kiwanis sponsored their biggest Taste of Germantown ever as the village community turned out in big numbers to listen to music in the park while tasting many different foods and beverages at Firemen’s Park in Germantown, Wisconsin on Thursday evening. The event has seen a groundswell of growth since the pandemic period. But the 2022 version of the summertime event in Germantown was the biggest ever. It would seem the whole village turned out for what many believe is the best neighborhood party in Southeastern Wisconsin. This year’s Taste of Germantown in Firemen’s Park on Thursday, July 28, 2022 was epic.
Yes, it was the 9th Annual Taste of Germantown, an event put on by the Germantown Kiwanis Club, and sponsored by Bank Five Nine. Food vendors and food trucks were spaced throughout the park to supply attendees with a variety of dinner, snack and dessert options. Artisans and non-profit organizations had the opportunity to display their services for village residents to see and be aware of.
The entertainment this year was sponsored by KNash Team Shouthwest Realty and Foundations: Health & Wholeness. Musical groups performed at the Gehl’sPerforming Arts Pavillion. Musical groups included Off the Record, Germantown High School’s Wall of Sound and a contemporary popular music group, the Fender Benders.
Many Germantown families came to the park to spread out on the beautiful park lawns to enjoy dinner and a few beverages as they listened to the music. Children were entertained at the Germantown Park & Rec Department’s Rec Carnival with bouncy houses and carnival games. The Treetop Explorers were on hand to help children learn to belay up the giant trees in the park. The Germantown Community Library & Friends were on hand with children’s activities.
The biggest Taste of Germantown ever came about as a community event that the Germantown Kiwanis started nine years ago to raise money for their ambitious project, the Gehl’s Performing Arts Pavilion. It has turned into an annual event for all Germantown residents to enjoy food, get the gang together, see old friends and enjoy entertainment in the park.
