TASTE OF GERMANTOWN
Taste of Germantown, the Germantown Kiwanis Club’s annual Party in the Park, saw a huge turnout from the Germantown community. The fund raising event was held in Firemen’s Park on July 27, 2017. All Germantown residents were invited, and it looks like most of the village was in attendance.
“It was way bigger than we ever dreamed it would be,” said Carol Miller, a Germantown Kiwanis Club member in charge of the event. “We’ve been promoting this event for four years now, and it looks like it really took off this year.”
Taste of Germantown is the a community event that the Germantown Kiwanis started four years ago to raise money for their ambitious project, the Gehl Performing Arts Pavillion. It is a time for all Germantown residents to enjoy food and fun as local restaurants and eateries present some of their fine fair, and local entertainment groups show off Germantown’s talents.
First Bank Financial Centre here in Germantown was the featured sponsor for the event this year. Their participation has allowed us to expand our offerings making this year’s event a family friendly activity. A children’s play area, sponsored by Momentum Early Learning Center, included a bounce house, sensory tables, crafts, duck game, face painting and the Firemen’s Park Playground.
A full schedule of music and entertainment captivated parents and onlookers alike as some of Germantown’s many bands and jazz groups performed.
It was the communities’ last chance to buy-a-brick for the Gehl Foods Performing Arts Pavilion which Kiwanis will build in Firemen’s Park. All proceeds from the night go toward the final funding to break ground on the Pavilion this fall!!

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.
