TosaFest returns for its 42nd year of music, food and fun September 8th and 9th, 2017! With all the festivals that take place along the Lakefront, it’s easy to forget about the ones that don’t. This is one you’ll definitely want to check out. TosaFest is a fun-filled, two-day event that celebrates the historic Wauwatosa village and showcases its community spirit through family-friendly activities, nonstop entertainment and some of the most diverse food options around.

There’s the the cupcake and chili challenge, where participants compete to see who has the best recipe in each category. Hope you didn’t think we meant cupcakes with chili. That would definitely be interesting.

Fun Time Bounces is where you’ll find an incredible amount of games to play and activities to try. From Radical Run Obstacle to Disco Dome and endless fun in between, you’ll find it hard to break away to experience everything else the Fest has to offer.

With all that activity, you’ll no doubt find yourself hungry throughout the day. Fortunately, you’ll find Saz’s Festivals there to provide all the sustenance you need to keep you part of the action. All of your Saz’s festival-favorites will be there, of course, like our mozzarella marinara and our signature BBQ pulled pork sandwich.

Other noteworthy activities include Artist’s Corner, TosaFest’s arts and crafts show, a Firefighters Memorial – honoring firefighters who lost their lives on 9/11 , and all-day live music on both Friday and Saturday.

Get $2 admission to TosaFest when you bring in non-perishable food items all weekend long. Each donation will support Tosa Cares, who works to provide food and assistance to those in need.

As always, Saz’s Festivals prides itself on taking an active role in community events and promoting those that celebrate the spirit and unique charm our city has to offer. Check out our full festival schedule to see where we’ll be as we head into fall.
