Block Party on Broad

Sunday, June 6th

The Boys & Girls Club of Oshkosh is proudly celebrating a milestone of 50 years of our doors being open and serving the youth of Oshkosh and their families. While we elevated this landmark birthday throughout 2020, our festivities will culminate in a citywide, start of the summer event—Block Party on Broad—here at the Club. 

Broad Street will close down for live entertainment from Franki Moscato and DJ Jordan of Beats 2 Go, activities for families, snacks, Club tours and more. Everyone in the community is invited to attend this free outdoor event.  Countless youth and families have been impacted by the Club in the past five decades and we want to celebrate the Club’s birthday and amazing history over the years and reunite alumni and friends from years past to share memories and successes together, because all of you really are “the Club”!

If you attended the Club, worked at the Club, volunteered at the Club or know someone who has, or you just want to see what Boys & Girls Club is about and learn about the programs and services we provide to the community, then this family-friendly party is for you!

There will be a short program at 4 p.m. where we will be sharing an exciting announcement!

You can look forward to the following free activities:

  • Music from Franki Moscato (2-4 p.m.) and DJ Jordan of Beats 2 Go LLC (4:30-6 p.m.)
