This year’s Fiesta Waukesha fundraising event, underwritten by Waukesha State Bank, will include Guatemalan artists and La Casa’s youth artists, who will be displaying their talents.
A highlight of the festival will be City of Waukesha Mayor Reilly and his famous barbeque. The Mayor’s well-known travelling smoker trailer was painted by La Casa’s youth artists earlier this year. This project is part of the Youth Arts Initiative made possible by the Mary Nohl Fund of the Greater Milwaukee Foundation. Youth range in age of 12-18 years old and are all from the city of Waukesha. Art classes are held at La Casa several times a week after school. All proceeds from the Mayor’s barbeque ribs and chicken sale will benefit La Casa de Esperanza’s Charter School.
Fiesta Waukesha is FREE to the public offering a wide variety of Hispanic music entertainment, historic Mexican artifacts display, amusement rides with wristband specials Saturday and Sunday, a free Children’s Area, 50/50 raffle, community information booths, and Latin American & other cuisines for the community to enjoy!
•Opening Ceremony is held at 5 p.m. on Friday, June 12 featuring dignitaries and a reception. México Indígena will perform prior to the Opening Ceremony.
