A celebration of Milwaukee's cultural diversity through food, music art and dance


Join us on Saturday, February 29 for our 12th annual party with a purpose!
Carnival Milwaukee brings together nearly 300 people each February to feature locally-owned and operated restaurants, caterers, small and large businesses, cultural groups and performers all in one place, painting a picture of the economic vitality occurring across Milwaukee neighborhoods.

Join us to enjoy cuisine from dozens of local restaurants,  live world music performed by De La Buena and Samba da Vida, dance performances by Panadanza Dance Company and a topnotch raffle that boasts prize packages worth hundreds of dollars each!

Doors to our highly-anticipated food tasting, live music and raffle table open at 6:00pm. If you arrive early, we will have festive appetizers, photobooth fun and a cash bar available in the the beautiful Renaissance Place lobby at 5:00pm.

Through this annual fundraiser, UEDA provides the Milwaukee community with a space to come together across deeply rooted geographic and cultural boundaries for meaningful cross-cultural interactions. Through locally produced food, music, art and dance, we aim to give attendees a deeper appreciation and understanding of Milwaukee’s cultural mosaic.

The venue has 100+ on-site parking spots available. When possible,  we recommend that guests use public transportation or ride-share (Lyft/Uber).




General Admission: $50 | UEDA Member: $45

Ticket price includes food, live music and limited parking.
