Taste of Wisconsin is the annual food and beverage festival celebrating the best flavors of the state. A 3-day festival is held every summer on the shores of Lake Michigan at Celebration Place at Kenosha’s Harbor. Taste of Wisconsin is family-friendly and free for the public to attend.

The outdoor celebration at Kenosha lakeshore features dozens of specialty food and beverage vendors, live music, and culinary demonstrations. The event, which has been organized by the Kiwanis Club of Western Kenosha since 2009, supports local charities including scholarships and youth programs. The festival typically draws tens of thousands of attendees Thursday through Saturday.

A weekend full of food, beverages, and free music features fresh produce from local farmers and growers. Cedar Crest ice cream and gelato are available by the scoop. Specialty vendors offer jams, coffee, maple syrup, and more. Beer, wine, soft drinks, and water are available at four Beverage Gardens. Music Stage tents also offer soda, lemonade, smoothies, and other non-alcoholic beverages. Kids can enjoy games, bounce houses, and rock climbing for a small fee. There is no ticket system at the Taste of Wisconsin. Food, beverage, and other products are sold for cash.
