What is Carnival Milwaukee?
Milwaukee is known as the City of Festivals, holding individual ethnic and
cultural festivals each year. Carnival Milwaukee is an annual event that
celebrates ALL of our ethnic and cultural heritages. Attendees will be
dressed in costumes and cultural attire and enjoy music, flavorful exotic
dishes and live entertainment from around the world.
Party with a Purpose at Carnival Milwaukee!
