Thanks to all who joined us at UEDA’s annual fundraiser! On Saturday, February 28 nearly 320 people in the UEDA community in celebrating Milwaukee’s culture and diversity through food and music.
Carnival Milwaukee 2015 featured a Food Tasting with 24 local restaurants & caterers, large puppets, dancing and live music by The Aluar Pearls. Each year this event raises funds for UEDA and supports local businesses and organizations that contribute to the economic and cultural vitality of Milwaukee. Check out pictures from the 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. 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.
