Volunteers from the Wayland Main Street Program have pulled together a spectacular community celebration this summer. We will have food, music, art, games, competition, dancing, singing, and merry-making.


Of special note this year, The City of Wayland is having a very special anniversary – 150 years! We are excited to celebrate the City’s sesquicentennial (say that five times fast) and are offering commemorative t-shirts for sale to the public. Please order your shirts by July 26, 2018 by visiting the sites listed below.












Additional sizes and colors available, including children’s.
