Cudahy Day!
Saturday, September 17, 2022, 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Rain date: Saturday, September 24, 2022
On September 17, 1892, Patrick Cudahy held an auction for parcels of land near the Lake Michigan shoreline. The sale of these parcels would mark our city's historic beginnings. Now, 130 years later, we are planning an anniversary party to remember this event.

Please join us for a day celebrating all things Cudahy! Browse booths set up by community organizations, enjoy historical displays and presentations, and check out archival audio and video recordings for a look back into what life was like in Cudahy many years ago as well as what Cudahy has to offer today.

Be sure to come hungry! The Cudahy Historical Society will have a variety of tasty offerings to purchase, including: pulled pork sandwiches, chips, hot dogs, soda, water and yummy BACON treats!
Would your business or organization like to have a free booth at Cudahy Day? Let us know! Please call 414-769-2244 or email and ask for Michelle. Thanks! 

Now available: remote printing! See our Digital Services page for more information.
