Now that Summerfest, that Harley weekend thing, and Bastille Days have all come and gone, Milwaukeeans can now shift focus to the numerous festivals, block parties, and other civic celebrations that are still to come before summer’s cruel conclusion. Included on that lengthy list of upcoming events is Puerto Rican Family Festival. After taking 2020 off for obvious reasons, the state’s only Puerto Rican festival resurfaced for its 8th installment in 2021 at Wilson Park and a 9th annual edition at Jackson Park last year. This year’s Puerto Rican Family Festival, the 10th annual affair, will relocate once again—to Milwaukee’s lakefront this time.
The 2023 Puerto Rican Family Festival will take place at Veterans Park on Sunday, August 20. With more than 100 acres to work with, there’s plenty of room to celebrate Puerto Rican culture in a wide variety of ways. Just some of the things attendees can expect to experience at the family-friendly event include: dancing, food, live entertainment on three stages, a children’s area with 10 bounce houses, a cultural tent, a “Bad Bunny Mix Tent,” and more.
