Racine Fiesta Mexicana – August 6

Racine – Franksville, WI will be coming alive with the music, food and vibrant colors of La Fiesta Mexicana to be held on  Saturday, August 6 from 9am to 11pm.

This is the 5th annual fiesta held in Racine hosted by the Urban League.  Although a fiesta is non-traditional for the Urban League, the Racine/Kenosha Urban League affiliate has been serving the Spanish speaking population since the Spanish Center of Racine and Kenosha, Inc. ceased all operations in Kenosha on 2012 due to funding cuts.

Racine/Kenosha Urban League affiliate has been supporting Spanish speakers however Yolanda Santos Adams, who is organizing Fiesta Mexicana in Racine states that “There is a tremendous gap in services to the Spanish-speaking residents in Racine and Kenosha”.

Events like La Fiesta Mexicana help to not only bring people together, but it also serves as an awareness to help support groups like the  Racine/Kenosha Urban League for helping the Spanish speaking population.

Yolanda states that this year Fiesta Mexicana will have a new addition to compliment all of the great evens planned at Fiesta.

This year Fiesta Mexicana will be featuring an Expo Hall for small businesses and community partners.  The Expo Hall will be a place where visitors can enjoy opportunities to network and buy quality items.
