Join over 250 guests at UEDA’s annual fundraiser, Carnival Milwaukee for a wonderful night of “Carnivale” fun! Each year, this event features people in costumes & cultural attire, a Food Tasting with over 25 local restaurants & caterers and and live music by De La Buena and other carnival entertainment. Check out pictures from last year’s event here – it’s an event not to be missed!
Carnival Milwaukee is a “party with a purpose” – it’s an opportunity to celebrate our cultural diversity with an evening of fun & entertainment, while supporting local businesses and raising funds to support UEDA’s programs & operations, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. These businesses are all locally-owned and operated, and contribute to the economic vitality of our community. Additional event information can be found here.
