The Onset Bay Association is a non-profit civic corporation dedicated to investing in Onset. We are a community working together to enhance the

quality of life for every individual with whom we come in contact.

Together we make a difference.


The OBA sponsors many community activities including The Annual Onset

Blues Festival, the Summer of Love Concert Series at

the Band Shell, the Annual Kayak Poker Run, Illumination Night, Shakespeare on Vacation, Free Onset Film Festival on Thursday nights, Onset Street Painting Festival, Onset Music Festival, The Blessing of the Fleet, Fireworks, Sandcastle Day, Onset Beach Kite Festival and more! There are three celebrations designed specifically for children and families. They include the Easter Egg Hunt, Halloween Family Fun Day and Christmas in the Parks. Halloween Family Fun Day includes craft making, cookie decorating, scary stories and a costume parade. The Onset Village Christmas in the Parks includes letters to Santa and a visit from Santa via fire truck along with hayrides and the Talking Christmas Tree. Along with these events, the OBA is instrumental in developing other programs to enhance Onset Village. Several committees of hardworking volunteers develop and implement many village programs, such as the Beautification Committee, which annually plants and maintains flowers in the village.

Donations and sponsorships are always welcome! Membership is encouraged and your participation as a volunteer is vital in keeping us going. Please consider joining.
