“We invite people to travel the world in Silver City – all in one day,” remarked LBWN Economic Development Manager Celia Benton. There will be food options from around the globe include papaya salad, Mexican tacos, Bangkok fried rice and many more specials that will take our taste buds on a journey around the world.

Entertainment highlights include Folkloric dance from Escamilla Entertainment, Lao dancers and music, along with a variety of other local artists. A unique feature this year is the Pop-Up Museum from Milwaukee Public Museum, which is an exhibit created by the community with meaningful objects or stories that they bring and showcase during the event under the theme of ‘Cultural Foodways’.
