COMMUNITY EVENTS

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.
