While the 92nd Western Welcome Week (WWW) looks a lot different this year, there are still events to enjoy. The 10-day event runs August 8 to 16 and while many of traditional events are canceled, some are also being re-imagined so the community can still participate in a safe way. This year’s theme is Past • Present • Future — The Tradition Continues.
Here’s what happening in 2020
WWW Family Pancake Breakfast
What’s for breakfast? The Western Welcome Week Family Pancake Breakfast is moving to a new location – Geneva Park, 2255 W. Berry Avenue.
On Sunday, August 9 from 7:30 a.m. to 11 a.m., enjoy a boxed pancake breakfast that includes three fluffy pancakes, three delicious sausage links, butter, maple syrup, and orange juice or coffee for $5.

92nd Western Welcome Week Grand Parade Canceled
After considerable discussion, both internally and externally, the Western Welcome Week board made the difficult decision to cancel the 92nd Grand Parade. With social distancing protocols and public health orders that prevent large gatherings, this is the appropriate decision in order to keep both participants and the community safe. WWW looks forward to bringing the community the grandest Grand Parade in 2021!
