Viva MKE Tour is a new event created to engage the local community and businesses. It is going to be a place where Mexican culture unites with our vibrant and eager community in enjoying traditional drinks, food, entertainment and ethnic products in a safe manner. We have collaborated with three local businesses where guests will meet at, check in, and be picked up from. Mexican Fiesta will be providing round trip transportation (included in your ticket) to take you to and from the Tour.
Viva MKE is a collaboration between south-side businesses. Check-in/Pick up locations include Fiesta Café, Oscars Pub & Grill, and Zocalo. The tour will take place at Mexican Fiesta Headquarters/Flores Hall.
Guests should expect to see, take part of, and engage with Mexican traditions all while having fun. Guests will also have the opportunity to purchase local products that range from food/drinks to a market-style of products.
Guests will have to select a “meeting point” when purchasing a ticket. Guests must arrive to said location 30 minutes ahead of the tour start time. Here, guests will check-in, have a chance to grab a drink, a bite to eat, and will be where the bus will pick guests up and take to the Viva MKE Event. This selected “Meeting Point” will also be where guests will be dropped off after the tour has ended. Once the Tour is over, guests will be directed to board buses specifically marked with the restaurant chosen as your “Meeting point” to return guests to the original pick-up location.
Yes, guests will have the opportunity to redeem 4 FREE shots throughout the tour along with purchasing various other traditional alcoholic/non-alcoholic beverages. Viva MKE Tour will also have stands where guests will have the opportunity to purchase traditional Mexican snacks.
