Bay-Rama Fishfly Festival

Enriching New Baltimore

Bay-Rama is an organization that exists to raise money to donate back to our community. We are able to do that by putting together our festival each year.
The profits from this festival have enabled us to give wonderful things back to New Baltimore and its residents.
We are very proud of this and here are just a few things we have accomplished:

  • Every year our Miss Bay-Rama and her court members receive scholarships, we also award two scholarships to Anchor Bay High School graduates,
    which totals over $85,000 donated since the start of that program.

  • The Annual New Baltimore Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony and cocoa with Santa is an event Bay-Rama has put on for over 35 years,a tradition we plan to carry on for many more.

  • Bay-Rama has donated the land on which the current beach and playscape are located in Walter & Mary Burke Park, as well as donations to build the restrooms at the park picnic tables and steel seawall possible.

  • Bay-Rama purchased,developed and donated Festival Park to the city. This Park is a 31 acre site that has two full soccer fields, four baseball diamonds, a practice field,
    multiple picnic areas, parking and a 1 mile walking path. In 2016 we donated four sets of bleachers for the baseball diamonds.

  • We are excited to announce that the DTE Energy Foundation has awarded The Bay-Rama Fishfly Festival with a $5000 Grant to use toward community improvement.

  • We are currently working on a beautiful playscape for Festival Park, we are very excited about this project and plan to have it installed during the summer of 2018!




The money that is earned each year from the festival is used to better the community. To date we have provided over $2,100,000 to our city and its residents
