Over 235 guests joined UEDA at the Zoofari Conference Center for a wonderful night of flavorful exotic dishes from 26 local restaurants and caterers, live music by De La Buena, guests in costumes & cultural attire and other carnival entertainment.
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. We appreciate the support of our guests, sponsors, Food Tasting participants, Raffle donors, Committee and Volunteers!
