American Croatian Annual Radio Club Banquet October 20th 2018

Great food, great music – that about sums up the 64th Annual American-Croatian Radio Club banquet slated for Saturday, October 20th in Milwaukee.  As per usual, the banquet will take place at Sacred Heart Croatian Church’s hall, located at 917 North 49th Street. Live music will be provided by the talented guys in Rakija Band.

Great food?  Here is what you have to look forward to – a sit down dinner featuring breaded Chicken, Gulash and Sarma – all homemade by the dedicated volunteers from Sacred Heart and the Radio Club.

Now for the key details: Social Hour (also known as cocktail hour) will commence at 5:30 pm; dinner will begin at 6:30 pm, followed by dancing – all subject to change due to Croatian time.

Admission is $25.00 for adults, $12.00 for children 6 – 12 years of age and $10.00 if you show up for the dance only.  Don’t be a cheap date – make him take you to dinner!

For tickets, call Steve Varga at (414) 541-0262 (or at the Legion Post), Damir Braovac at (262) 796-1253, or Karlo Milling at (920) 253-8595.  Reserve your tickets and table today!

Milwaukee’s Croatian Radio Club was established in 1953 – a great year for many, many reasons.  We have no real way of knowing this for sure, but we believe it is the oldest radio club in the USA.

Anyway, you can tune into Milwaukee’s Croatian Radio program every Saturday, from 5:00 – 7:00 pm, at 1340 WJYI AM or 98.7 FM.

Please make plans for a great evening of fine food and great music and support the Radio Club on October 20th




Welcome to the Milwaukee Croatians website, which is provided by the Federation of Croatian Societies.

Our intent is to have you use this site to find information on events and activities within our local Croatian Community, to be able to get more information about our member organizations, as well as provide you with easy access to news, shopping, and other things related to Croatia.

The Federation of Croatian Societies has been around now for over 75 years and is the umbrella organization for a number of various Croatian organizations based in Wisconsin. These member organizations exist to help preserve and promote our Croatian Culture.  The Federation of Croatian Societies is also a 501(c)3 organization.

We own and operate Croatian Park, a 30 acre parcel of land located in Franklin, WI.  Croatian Park is well known as the home of the Croatian Eagles Soccer Club, which is the oldest active soccer club in North America.  We also have our picnic grounds and facilities that host a number of member organization activities, and Croatian Park is available for rental to the general public.

Also recently, we helped facilitate a Sister City relationship between the City of Milwaukee, Wiscosin and the City of Zadar, Croatia.  Here is a link to video and more information about this relationship.  CLICK HERE
