Exploring Milwaukee's Immigrant History

City of Festivals: Ethnic Immigrants of Milwaukee

Nicknamed The City of Festivals, hear the stories of Milwaukee’s Irish, German, Polish, Italian and Mexican immigrants that came to the city, plus meet the makers carrying on their many food traditions, during this live, interactive 1.5 hour virtual tour. 

Your Milwaukee Virtual Tour Expert
During our online experience, your Milwaukee expert will entertain you with lively stories of the city’s history and culture, and share behind-the-scenes videos to see the spaces and meet the people unique to the topic at hand. We are excited to connect and share our stories and knowledge with you right in your own homes.

Add-on a City of Festivals Fudge Sampler Pack to enjoy Milwaukee Fudge Company’s uniquely themed flavors! Box includes 1/4 lb of each of these flavors:

    • Chocolate Whiskey – A nod to the world’s largest Irish music festival, Irish Fest, our creamy chocolate fudge is infused with Milwaukee’s own Kinnickinnic Whiskey from Great Lakes Distillery.

    • Cannoli – Cannoli are a Milwaukee Italian treasure just like Festa Italiana, the Little Pink Church, and the most delicious bakery on the corner of Humboldt and Brady Street that inspired this fudge. Our twist on this favorite dessert is an ultra smooth white chocolate fudge base topped with rich chocolate chips and tart diced candied cherries – fudgetaboutit!

    • Apple Strudel – The echoes of Milwaukee’s German heritage are still felt throughout the city in cuisine, architecture, polka and, of course, beer! Milwaukeeans give nod to the changing of the seasons with German Fest, leisurely afternoons at one the Brew City’s many biergartens and celebrating Oktoberfest! Our luscious caramel fudge is infused with brown sugar, apples, raisins, cinnamon, and walnuts to highlight the flavor of a classic German apple strudel.

    • Churro – Inspired by our favorite churro in Milwaukee’s Latin Quarter, Walker’s Point, our Churro fudge is lighter than our classic fudge and made with rich caramel swirled with cinnamon and crisp pecans for a heavenly taste right out of the bakery! 

    • Free shipping in contiguous United States
