Be part of the Tradition!

                Milwaukee, WI - The Wisconsin Hispanic Scholarship Foundation, Inc. (WHSF) is proud to present one of the largest Mexican Hispanic festivals in the Midwest (paid entrance) "Mexican Fiesta". Since 1973, Mexican Fiesta has been bringing the sound, culture, and taste of México and Latin American countries to Milwaukee's lakefront.

Celebrate three days of fun, food, Mariachi, and Fiesta this coming August 25th, 26th, & 27th, 2017 at the Summerfest grounds.

Mexican Fiesta encourages individuals from all ethnic backgrounds to share the beauty of Latin Countries' history, art, music, and food.

The attractive Cultural Pavilion will display an extraordinary show and exhibition of the  Mexican arts & crafts from more than 100 artisans coming directly from different states of México. Where the past and the present come alive through the crafts, folkloric dances music and craft workshops. Also, you can enjoy our traditional freshly baked bread "Pan de Feria".

As a tradition, we will count with the presence of Our Lady of Zapopan, coming directly from Zapopan, Jalisco, Mexico. The sanctuary honoring  Our Lady of Zapopan will be open for the three days of the festival from noon to midnight. Confessions will be heard from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. each day. On Sunday, join us in the lakefront procession at 10:15 a.m. followed by Mass.

Plenty of different activities will be hosted during Mexican Fiesta 2017 for the entire family, Soccer Tournaments, Contest, Midway Rides, Children's Area & Stage, Rock en Español Stage, Commercial Expo, Community & Health Fair Pavilion, Hotwheelz 2017 - Car & Motorcycle show, Art Gallery, Genealogy Exhibit and Much More.
