Community & Special Events

The City of Wyoming and Wyoming Recreation Department continue to bring new activities and events to Wyoming while offering events that are cherished year after year.

Art Show
The annual Art Show is held every year on the third Sunday in May along the tree-lined streets of Worthington Avenue and on the grounds of the Civic Center. Over 125 regional fine arts exhibitors are selected to participate in the booth sales and competition. At the close of the show pieces are professionally judged and cash awards are presented. The Wyoming Art Show is operated by a volunteer group of Wyoming residents, with the City of Wyoming providing invaluable support, services, and space. The Art Show has been cancelled for 2020.

Summer Concerts & Events
Wyoming hosts a number of Summer Concerts on the Village Green and Civic Center with live music, craft beer, wine, and food. As details get finalized they will be posted to our social media pages, to the website, and on the website calendar. Events are also listed in detail in the Word on Wyoming and Recreation Times publications that are mailed to all homes.

Fourth of July
The Annual Fourth of July celebration is the most popular event and tradition that overflows with small town flavor. A new theme is chosen each year and carried through the day’s events. The morning parade features neighborhoods competing for who carried out the theme best. In the afternoon, many neighborhoods take advantage of this opportunity to get reacquainted by organizing a block party. At dusk, a live band plays music and refreshments are available. The City lets off a firework display as the grand finale of the day. For more information about The City of Wyoming’s Fourth of July Celebration, call 513.821-5200 or email.

The Muddy Pig
As part of the Fourth of July celebrations in Wyoming, The Muddy Pig is becoming a very popular annual event. Families from toddlers to grandparents get to roll through mud filled obstacles at North Park for an afternoon of good clean fun! The Muddy Pig is a fundraiser benefiting the Wyoming Police Department’s community outreach programs. The Muddy Pig has been cancelled for 2020.
