125th Anniversary Celebration

125 Anniversary Header

Message from Mayor Reilly

2021 is going to be an exciting year for our community! Throughout the year we will be celebrating 125 years since our incorporation as the City of Waukesha. It is a monumental task to try and encapsulate 125 years of life in one year, but Waukesha’s rich history is one that deserves to be celebrated. The City is full of history and this year we will work to bring that history to life. 

As we look back and celebrate, we also have the opportunity to reach forward and help shape the type of community we want to be in the next 125 years. Great people make great communities and I know that as we all work together the brightest days for our City are still ahead. 

A special thanks to the incredible team of volunteers and partners who along with City staff are helping to make this year-long celebration of our City’s anniversary possible. I look forward to seeing many of you at events throughout the year as we celebrate 125 years of Waukesha!
