The Town of Ashwaubenon was erected by Act of the Legislature of the State of Wisconsin approved March 16th and published the 19th of the same month 1872, being Chapter 4 of the local Laws of 1872. Ashwaubenon was later incorporated into the Village of Ashwaubenon in 1977.
Today, Ashwaubenon is a vibrant suburb of Green Bay surrounding historic Lambeau Field. While just 17,000 residents call it home, this regional hub to shop, work, and play grows to over 35,000 during the day. While it is a football town at heart and the Green Bay Packers are an active member of the community, a large regional shopping district, the Resch Center (sports and entertainment arena), the Resch Expo (exposition hall), a competitive collegiate baseball and soccer stadium and the Epic Event Center (concert venue), provide loads of entertainment to both locals and tourists year-round.
As Ashwaubenon prepares to celebrate our Sesquicentennial in 2022, we will reflect on our history, celebrate our accomplishments, and plan for a prosperous future ahead. We invite you to join us! We are grateful for your commitment to our community and your contributions to our unique story.
Indulge in the biggest Village celebration of the year! Ashwaubenon is celebrating it's 150th birthday with a week long celebration, beginning Monday, August 8th with a kick off celebration at Ashwaubenon High School's Goelz Field.
Keep the fun going online and post your photos from the event to share with us using the hashtag #Ashwaubenon150 on Facebook & Twitter.
