HartFest was started to engage the Wauwatosa community in the spirit of giving to organizations that greatly impact the area. Annually, HartFest creates a fun and family friendly event which draws nearly 10,000 attendees. The HartFest weekend makes the Village of Wauwatosa come alive with events such as a Kids Area, Wauwatosa School of Music performance, Live Entertainment, Skateboard Demos, a Half Marathon, and a Martial Arts Demo with J.K. Lee Black Belt Academy.
