The WHSF/Mexican Fiesta will, unfortunately, be postponing the event Viva MKE Tour that was going to take place on August 28th and 29th, 2020 as a result of the increase of cases of Covid-19 throughout our city.

Our priorities remain the same, maintaining the health and safety of all guests, volunteers, and staff. We remained hopeful that with the proper health protocols in place we could execute a fun and safe event but eventually had to come to the hard conclusion to postpone. We are saddened by the fact of not being able to celebrate our culture and city together, physically, but we are excited to see how we can all come together as a community in other ways.

Thank you,

WHSF/Mexican Fiesta
