This year marks the Republic of Latvia’s centennial, and its ambassador to the U.S.A. will be partnering with LELCA Archbishop Lauma Zusevics to welcome the public at a Wauwatosa area celebration of this anniversary.

The festivities will include a showcase of music, food and other cultural components relating to the European nation. All ages are welcome to attend the function, and the suggested dress is either a traditional Latvian folk costume or black tie.

The day will begin at 3:00 pm with a cultural program that includes a concert performed by area musicians that will be playing Latvian music. After this, there will be a cocktail reception which will be followed by a dinner. The event will conclude with more music and dancing. Parking is available on site, and everyone is invited to come out and be a part of the fun.

Tickets for this celebration of Latvia’s 100th birthday are currently being sold, and the first 100 are on offer at a discounted price. Festive banners and other traditional decorations for this sort of occasion can be custom designed and then printed by an area banner printing company.

The doors of the Latvian Centennial Celebration will be opening at 3:00 pm on November 18. The venue for the festivities is located at 1451 North Prospect Avenue in Milwaukee, and more details have been made available on the celebration’s online listing.
