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 that Bay-Rama has put on for over 35 years, a tradition we plan       to carry on for many more.

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

  •     Bay-Rama 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 ball diamonds.

  •     We are excited to announce that The DTE Energy Foundation has awarded The Bay-Rama Fishfly Festival with a $5000 Grant to be used toward community                improvements!

  •      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
