Nearly 250 guests joined UEDA at our annual fundraiser for a wonderful night of “Carnivale” fun! We saw people in costumes & cultural attire, enjoying flavorful exotic dishes from 28 local restaurants and caterers, live music by De La Buena and other carnival entertainment. Pictures will be posted soon, so stay tuned! We thank our Sponsors, Partners and Committee members listed below for their support.
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. We encourage you to patronize and support them! You’ll find a list of past Carnival Milwaukee Food Tasting participants on our About Carnival Milwaukee page.
