Community events help bring everyone together to celebrate not just our collective identity as residents of Wood Village, but to share cultural identities, customs, and practices with one another.  In addition, these events help connect residents and guests with area services, organizations, and businesses.  We recognize the low-income nature of the community, which is why we strive to have events that can be attended and enjoyed at no cost.

There are a number of ways to be involved as a sponsor at this event, including financial and in-kind donations. As an event sponsor, the City recognizes your contribution through acknowledgement on all event promotional materials, including our:

Event banners & flyers

Bi-monthly newsletter

Social media & website postings
