HAPPY HUNDRED!

1923-2023

Westgate Centennial

The 1920s – oh, what a decade! It was the age of jazz and the prohibition era that ended with a bang when the stock market crashed and shook the world. 
 
And just beyond the city limits of Columbus, Ohio, a new neighborhood was born: Westgate. In 1923, the neighborhood was laid out with six houses appearing on Binns, and during 1924, the Westgate addition was well underway. Turning 100 is something for Westgate to celebrate, so let’s get to it!

Available here – or at the Centennial Celebration.

Glasses will also be available at events throughout the year and at our Westgate Farmers Market tent. We will only deliver through the neighborhood and will publish select times for pick-up at Third Way Cafe.

The Westgate Centennial Celebration is a come-and-go-as-you-like, Speakeasy-style Cocktail Party in honor of the 100th(–ish) birthday of our unique little corner of the city.

There will be loads of roaring 20s atmosphere, music, hors d’oeuvres, prohibition punch, “Black Jack” table, and photo ops are all included; cash bar available; centennial pint glasses and Celebrating Westgate books available for purchase.

Come dressed as a flapper, gangster, silent-era film star … or a time-traveler from 2024!

7 p.m.–10 p.m.

Westgate Neighborhood Scholarship

FOR SCHOOL YEAR 2023-2024

Applications accepted in March

The Westgate Neighbors Association Scholarship was established in 2015 as an extension of our mission to “help our community thrive”. The $1000 postsecondary education scholarship is funded by a portion of the proceeds from the Westgate Home & Garden Tour. It is awarded annually to a qualified resident of Westgate who contributes to the betterment of their community through their demonstrated service and leadership. While GPA and course selection are considered, the committee is focused more on the candidates’ involvement with their communities.
