Events DURING COVID-19

The City of West Allis Events Committee and West Allis Health Department announced on May 6, 2020 that they made the difficult decision to cancel all City of West Allis community events regularly scheduled through July 4, 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

The Community Charitly Gala, scheduled for March 28, will be held on October 23. 

The Events Committee and West Allis Health Department are assessing upcoming events as this situation evolves. This page will be updated frequently.

City events are supported largely by donation. Those wishing to support City events may do so through the West Allis Community Improvement Foundation at www.westallisfoundation.org.
