The Bay View Neighborhood Association, along with Bill Rouleau, Pumpkin Pavilion Creator and Committee Chair, would like to invite you to be a part of this years event! We have several sponsorship opportunities available to help you promote your business and to support Pumpkin Pavilion 2017! The dates are October 18-21. This 4 day family friendly event that brings over 2000 people to Bay View area to carve pumpkins, enjoy the display of almost 1000 lit pumpkins, hear live local music, eat delicious local food, and embrace the fun that is Halloween, all in the cozy environment of Humboldt Park Pavilion.
This event is entirely volunteer-powered, and in its existence, the Pumpkin Pavilion has added new attractions, displays and or events each year. Your donation will help cover costs associated with fire twirling, magic, hay rides, live music and face painting, among other things.
If you have immediate questions, please contact:
The Humboldt Park Friends are holding a listening session to discuss the Humboldt Park Lagoon. Join us to create a vision for how it will be used, how it should look, and how to prioritize the infrastructure surrounding the Lagoon.
We will be at the Humboldt Park Pavilion on Saturday September 30th from 9:00 am - 11:00 am.

Southside SOUP is a microgranting dinner celebrating and supporting creative projects in District 14. For a donation of $10 for adults (children 12 and under are free) attendees receive soup, salad, bread and a vote and hear from four presentations ranging from art, urban agriculture, social justice, social entrepreneurs, education, technology and more. Each presenter has four minutes to share their idea and answer four questions from the audience. At the event, attendees eat, talk, share resources, enjoy art and vote on the project they think benefits the city the most. At the end of the night, we count the ballots and the winner goes home with all of the money raised to carry out their project. Winners come back to a future SOUP dinner to report their project’s progress.
