Kiwanis: Serving the Germantown Community

Village of Germantown 4th of July Parade

The 2017 Germantown 4th of July Festivities is one of the finest small community celebrations in Wisconsin. The day-long activities include the Germantown Community Parade, a giant picnic in Firemen’s Park and the famous community fireworks display, the best one in Southeastern Wisconsin. All events are planned and hosted by the Germantown Kiwanis Club.

The parade starts at Noon, from the intersection in front of the Post Office, down Pilgrim Road, left on Main Street, right on Park Street and ends at Firemen’s Park.

Community picnic in Firemen’s Park includes food vendors and entertainment all day, 11:00 AM until 9:30 PM.

The famous Kiwanis Fireworks will start at 9 PM. Make sure to get there early to get your spot on the hill.

Germantown Kiwanis is currently seeking sponsors to help promote the Germantown 4th of July Celebration for 2017. The Germantown 4th of July Parade, festivities in Fireman’s Park and the incredible Germantown Fireworks are all coordinated by the Germantown Kiwanis Club with the help of interested organizations and businesses in the Germantown community. See some of your Germantown sponsors below.

What Is Kiwanis?

Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world, one child and one community at a time. Kiwanians are volunteers changing the world through service to children and communities.

There are over 8,000 clubs in 96 countries with more than 260,000 adult members and approximately 320,000 youth.

Germantown, Wisconsin Kiwanis

Germantown Kiwanis has been serving the community for over 29 years. Its volunteers have raised funds to give back to the community and to help support Germantown youth with leadership programs in the Germantown schools at the elementary level with K-Kids, middle school level with Builder’s Club and high school level with Key Club. These clubs all help kids learn about the value of volunteerism in the community. In addition, Kiwanis awards educational scholarships; sponsors youth sports teams, works with the PTA to offer education grants to help teachers develop special educational programs in the classroom and other volunteer work to support youth and the community. To support these activities, Kiwanis organizes a number of fund-raising events including the Germantown July 4th Festivities, the Taste of Germantown events and the project to build the Gehl Foods Performing Arts Pavillion in Firemens Park.

The Kiwanis Club of Germantown, Wisconsin is proud to support youth in our community. We are a proud group of community volunteers comprised of individuals from a wide array of backgrounds. Some of our members volunteer as individuals, parents, educators, civic leaders, or business owners. Anyone who is interested in making Germantown a better place to live is welcome to join us!


General weekly meetings are held at 7:30 am every Wednesday at Aldo’s Pizza in Germantown. General weekly meetings are often times informal, but a great time to discuss pressing needs of the group or simply to gain fellowship and learn more about our fellow Kiwanians and happenings in the community. If you are interested in joining or just want to learn more about Kiwanis, feel free to stop in.

If you or someone you know is interested in speaking at a Kiwanis Club meeting, please get in touch by email –

Meeting attendance is not mandatory for members, but is encouraged for all members.

If you are interested in learning more about our group, you are always welcome to attend any meeting!
