Mexican Fiesta!!

Mexican Fiesta brings the sound, culture and taste of Mexico to Milwaukee’s lakefront.
It's three days of fun, food, Mariachi, and fiesta for everyone.

Mexican Fiesta has become a stunning tribute to the vitality of the Hispanic community.

It has now developed into Wisconsin's largest (paid entrance) Mexican festival. In 1977 Mexican Fiesta accepted the invitation to move to Henry Maier Festival Park (Summerfest Grounds), making it 3 days of fun, food, music and culture for everyone to enjoy.

Today Mexican Fiesta is a family-oriented festival, a showcase of our heritage. It is the showcase for the year-round work of the Wisconsin Hispanic Scholarship Foundation, Inc., the festival’s sponsor, to unify the community in a gigantic effort to award scholarships for young Hispanic men and women.

Last year, I worked at the beer tent during Mexican Fiesta to support my school and I couldn't believe how colorful and energetic it was and how much great food was there! Let's check out the cultures and traditions of the Hispanic and Latino cultures at one of the last great festivals of the summer. Tickets are $13.00 online and $15.00 at the gate. We will also need to buy tickets for food and drinks when we get there.

    Hi everyone! I look forward to seeing you all on Saturday at 5:30. Let's meet by the fountain at the main entrance. Fingers crossed that it doesn't rain. My phone number is[masked]-8808. Text me if you have any problems or questions. If you no longer plan on coming to this event, please update your RSVP. For those of you who are new, we do have a three-strikes-and-you're-out policy here at Milwaukee Fun, and no-shows are not tolerated. I would hate to have to eliminate people from the group simply because you can't take the time to update your RSVP. Have a great rest of the week and we'll see you on Saturday!

    Hello Allison,
    For those of us going to Mexican Fiesta, where would you like us to meet up with you? I look forward to this event, as I couldn't go to last weekend's Irish Fest. I am looking forward to meeting you and the others.
    Sincerely,
    Major (Ret.) Cheri Rumler

      Cheri, I will send everyone an e mail and also post here in comments where we will be meeting. As of right now, I will say the fountain right as you enter the grounds.

    Susan Wade, age shouldn't be a factor in joining this diverse group. I'm 60 and I just joined a few days ago. I'm looking forward to enjoying my time with this group, so please reconsider and come join us.
