Cultural Family Event at Black Arts Festival: Milwaukee

August 3 @ 12:00 pm - 10:00 pm

WiFCC invites you to the Black Arts Festival MKE 2024 at the Summerfest Grounds in Milwaukee! We are happy to offer individuals and families impacted by adoption or out-of-home care the opportunity to attend this festival together. There is a limit of 5 tickets per household. Kids ages 7 and under do not require a ticket. This event is for Wisconsin’s adoptive, foster, guardianship, relative caregiver, and reunified families and individuals!

Black Arts Fest MKE is excited to return to the Summerfest grounds on Saturday, August 3, 2024, from 12 noon to 10 pm. This annual festival celebrates the deep roots of African Heritage and the creativity of Black Cultural Arts. Black Arts Fest MKE is packed with fun-filled festivities for all ages and backgrounds, including kids, youth, teens, adults, and seniors! Come enjoy this multi-generational experience of black culture & community through live performances in music, art, heritage, poetry, dance, shopping, food, fun, fashion, and more.

You will check in with a WiFCC specialist prior to entering the festival to receive your tickets from 12 pm to 1 pm. You are welcome to stay until the festival ends at 10 pm. WiFCC will establish a location to meet up at the festival for any families wishing to connect with others or socialize as well. This location and time will be emailed to you a week or so before the festival.

This event would be a great opportunity to invite your child’s birth/first family or previous foster family. We understand this may not work for all families, but encourage you to consider it. We hope to create an opportunity for children to have all their loved ones in one location whenever possible and create positive memories together. Please have each household register separately.

If you have questions or accommodation needs please contact Christy at ctimm@cclse.org.
