Join us on September 25, 2021, for Celebrate Wildwood — the City of Wildwood’s annual celebration, held in commemoration of its anniversary of incorporation. Last year, 2020 marked the City’s 25th anniversary. Since 2020’s festival was cancelled due to COVID, this year’s festival theme will be “25+1!” It is the hope that this will be a large-scale public event with a parade, kids’ activities, local authors, live music, food and drinks, local organizations booths and demonstrations, Civil War reenactors, a Scouting area, and an art festival. The event is all about the community!
