The many offerings on the menu include fan favorites like Wisconsin cheese curds; jerk chicken; BBQ ribs; brisket and pulled pork; spring rolls; homemade sausages; roasted corn-on-the-cob; and ethnic dishes including Italian, Mexican, Polish, Jamaican, Vietnamese, and German. The menu also features unique items such as pepper medleys, funnel cakes, mini pies and gourmet wine slushy mixes.

And to wash it all down, an array of specialty and traditional beers, flavorful wines, ciders, smoothies, and other refreshing beverages will be available. Vendors will accept cash for all food and non-alcoholic beverages and products. Beer and wine will be sold at the event's four Beverage Gardens.
Adding to the fabulous lakefront ambiance and tasteful fare, the live music lineup is as impressive as the food choices! Over 80 live musical performances are scheduled throughout the event on four music stages on the Taste of Wisconsin grounds.
The popular Demo Center is also back, offering presentations including a wide variety of cooking workshops and demonstrations. \u2028
Taste of Wisconsin™ offers FREE admission, and as always, parking in and around the lakefront and Downtown area is free. Plus, Kenosha’s vintage electric streetcar system is a fun and convenient way to make your way from your parking spot to the front gates of the event. Streetcars will run for extended hours during Taste of Wisconsin.
Kiwanis Club of Western Kenosha’s fundraising efforts are dedicated to providing a better quality of life for area youth, elderly, and disadvantaged through programs such as Terrific Kids and Kiwanis Youth Baseball, and providing much-needed funding to The Shalom Center’s shelter and food pantry programs. All proceeds in excess of operational expenses from Taste of Wisconsin benefit charities and community programs.
