One neighborhood festival allows Milwaukee to travel the world
Layton Boulevard West Neighbors (LBWN) will present the 6th Annual Silver City International Festival to be held on September 9, 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm on West National Avenue between South 33rd and South 35th Streets in Milwaukee.
Now in its sixth year, the Silver City International Festival will offer attendees the opportunity to “travel the world” in one of Milwaukee’s most diverse and vibrant neighborhoods. The festival features food, musicians, dancers, and contemporary artists highlighting the many cultures represented in the neighborhood and Milwaukee as a whole.
Artists will perform along National Avenue among the many superb ethnic restaurants and food trucks that will offer food specials on international cuisine.
“The Silver City International Festival is an opportunity to travel the world—all in one day and in one Milwaukee neighborhood. It celebrates the cultural diversity of the Silver City neighborhood,” remarks LBWN Community Outreach Manager, Gisela Ortega. This year we have added a third music stage, a wider selection of food options, as well as live art! Food options from around the globe will include Mexican enchiladas, Thailand pad thai, Brazilian coxinhas, Salvadorean pupusas and much more!
Entertainment highlights include Mexican Folkloric dances from Escamilla Entertainment, traditional Filipino cultural dances from the Fox Valley Filipino Dance Group, and music from Skai Academy along with a variety of other local artists. The Squeezettes will be headlining at the Mamie’s stage located at longstanding neighborhood eatery, Mamie’s Bar and Grill. Admission to the event is free for all.
