Community Events

The Village hosts a number of special events throughout the year. These events provide an opportunity for residents to enjoy the company of their neighbors and experience all that Bayside has to offer.

In order to make community events a success, the Village needs volunteers to serve in a variety of capacities at each event.  From serving food to supervising kids activities, volunteers have an opportunity to boodle. community and get to know neighbors.  If you are interested in volunteering at any of the events, please call 414-206-3915.

For a complete list of all of the Village's events, visit the Village's calendar.

A very special thank you to our Community Event sponsors who make these events possible. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor please complete this form and drop it off at Village Hall.
