The Kiwanis Club of Western Kenosha is proud to introduce the 8th Annual Taste of Wisconsin, a one-of-a-kind festival celebrating the best of Wisconsin foods and beverages. Taste of Wisconsin aims to bring its guests an immense array of flavors that are true Wisconsin specialties. Unlike festivals that celebrate a particular food or beverage category, or single community, Taste of Wisconsin brings the tastes, flavors and cultures of Wisconsin together in one amazing three-day celebration on the beautiful shore of Lake Michigan. In addition to the many opportunities to taste, sample, purchase and enjoy all the flavors of Wisconsin, guests will also be treated to a wide variety of live music and entertainment, culinary demonstrations, children’s activities and more. Taste of Wisconsin offers FREE admission, so it’s a family and budget-friendly choice for a summer weekend getaway.
Taste of Wisconsin is a major fundraiser for local charities served by the Kiwanis Club of Western Kenosha. Its fundraising efforts are dedicated to providing a better quality of life for area youth, elderly and disadvantaged persons through programs such as Terrific Kids and Youth Baseball, and providing much needed funding to The Shalom Center’s shelter and food pantry programs.
