The 97th Annual Woodside May Day Town Festival Parade and Carnival will be held on Saturday, May 4th, 2019.

The entire community and surrounding neighbors are invited to join in this wonderful Town tradition. This fun-filled day starts with a Fun Run organized by the Woodside Recreation Committee and a Pancake Breakfast put on by the Rotary Club of Woodside-Portola Valley, which is held at the Woodside Village Church.

This Citizen of the Year Award honors a Woodside resident who has made a sustained and significant contribution to Woodside School and specifically to the education and well-being of our children. Nominees will have created a legacy of volunteerism and should be recognized for leading with a spirit of generosity and stewardship toward the education and future of our children and the Woodside School community. Typically their children should have matriculated beyond the Woodside School.
