September 7th & 8th, 2012 in the Historic Wauwatosa Village
Fine Art Show is only on Saturday the September 8th, 2012
Tosa Fest is in its 34th year started by the Village of Wauwatosa Task Force to showcase the Wauwatosa Culture and historical Village. We have two main music stages, a kids area and numerous food Purveyors. It is a great all Family event.
A number of years ago we established our Tosa Fest Fine Art Show, it only happens on Saturday the weekend of the event. The Artisans are moving to State Street surrounding Ace Hardware we will no longer by located north of our Little Red Store / Harwood Stage area.
We showcase emerging and Professional Artisans along with and Young Peoples art from our Wauwatosa Schools. This is a true celebration of all things Art from Wauwatosa and our surrounding communities.
This is a fundraiser and 10% of Artisan sales or commissions taken go to the Task Force who in turn re-distributes the profits back into Wauwatosa; via Student Scholarships, non-profit-Organizations. You can find more information on the TosaFest.org site below

The Little Red Store is now home to our Historical Society‘s new Wauwatosa Information Center.
A note from Wauwatosa’s Historical Society about our Little Red Store
- Wauwatosa’s earliest commerce and architecture are vital aspects of its historical character. The Little Red Store is an important survivor from Wauwatosa’s earliest history, having served throughout the years as a dwelling, the oldest remaining post office building in Milwaukee County, a railroad station, general store, library, a place for political groups, harness shop, grocery, and plumbing shop. Many of the trades the building sheltered are things of the past that deserve to be commemorated for their contributions to the development of Wauwatosa.
