Community Picnic
Join us for the sixth annual Community Picnic on Wednesday, August 2, in downtown Wisconsin Rapids. Celebrate what makes this community great – its people! The picnic features local food, beverages and family fun, all offered at no charge. This event wouldn’t be possible without the time and dedication of volunteers. If you or someone you know is interested in helping on Wednesday, August 2, we would appreciate your support. If you wish to volunteer and are 13 or older, sign up here! As a reminder, volunteering may include standing, moving, lifting, and being in direct sunlight.

Established in rural Wisconsin in 1994 to serve the changing needs of the south Wood County area, Incourage has become a nationally-recognized leader in place-based philanthropy and community development. Guided by values of equity, opportunity, and shared stewardship, Incourage envisions a community that works well for all people. One physical manifestation of this vision is the redevelopment of the Tribune building, which demonstrates Incourage’s user-centered approach to growing a strong and inclusive local economy.
