City offices will be closed Monday, July 4th due to the Independence Day holiday. Regular hours will resume Tuesday, July 5th.

“So, what is the current state of our City? Mishawaka continues to be fundamentally STRONG, GROWING, FINANCIALLY STABLE, and SAFE. We continue to strive to be the most livable city in Northern Indiana. We are focused on growing Mishawaka in an orderly fashion and having each and every resident and neighborhood sharing in our prosperity and growth. I am pleased to report that for another year Mishawaka continues to build a community that our future generations can be proud of; one that is not only an attractive place in which to live, work, raise a family, and retire; but also, to visit, shop, seek healthcare, and do business.”

-- Mayor Wood (2022 State of the City Address)

Celebrate our Nation’s Independence Day with us at our fourth annual Independence Day Celebration! The day will feature live music, kid’s games and activities, food, arts and crafts, local business vendors, and FIREWORKS! This is an event you won’t want to miss!

We are also looking for fun-loving volunteers to help with this year’s Independence Day Celebration on July 2nd! Our volunteers will help with things like set up and tear down of the event, manning the “Lost Kids Tent,” directing vendors and attendees, and helping ensure that the day is running smoothly for all!

We will have three shifts, including 8am - 1pm, 1pm - 6pm, and 6pm - 11pm. Volunteers must be 18 years of age and up!
