Milwaukee: The City of Festivals
Milwaukee is a city that knows how to celebrate!
We think pretty much everything is worthy of a festival. Music? Of course! Garlic? Sure! Pugs? You bet! Mittens? Why not! Beer? Definitely! Many of the city’s biggest celebrations happen at our permanent lakefront festival grounds, home to Summerfest (the world’s largest music festival), Pridefest and cultural heritage festivals like Irish Fest (the world’s largest Celtic festival), German Fest, Mexican Fiesta and more.
Are you tired yet? We’re not – your attendees may only be in town for one of our festivals, but the locals keep the city rocking all summer long.
The NEWaukee Night Market shuts down Wisconsin Avenue right next to the convention center once a month in the summer with makers, vendors, food trucks, music and more, and almost every night of the week features a free outdoor concert in downtown parks. But summer isn’t the end of it – from the acclaimed Milwaukee Film Festival to Mitten Fest, an outdoor music festival in February, Milwaukee keeps the fun going year round.
In addition to the added value these events bring to your attendees, you can rest assured that our local businesses know how to make a special event truly special. From catering to A/V, events companies to venues, our partners bring the vibrant energy that makes Milwaukee the City of Festivals to help you pull off a first-class event.
