75th Anniversary Celebration


In June 1947, the Village of Wilton Manors was incorporated and the next 75 years were filled with many accomplishments. We invite everyone to help us celebrate our history and all that we have achieved. Join us on April 28, 2022, and May 21, 2022, for two exciting events and help us celebrate 75 years and the many reasons why Life’s Just Better Here.

Be sure to follow the City’s official Facebook, Twitter, Instagram pages as we highlight interesting historical facts about our Island City and share some fun opportunities for community participation leading up to the festivities.
