SUNDAY JUNE 11
The Locust Street Festival is back for the first time since 2019, including the Locust Street Beer Run!
We are excited to welcome back the same fun street festival that we have always thrown with 6 live music stages, local vendors, artists, food, and great beer.
*Please follow the City of Milwaukee Parking signs so you do not get towed*
In the early 70’s, Milwaukee planned to widen Locust street between Humboldt and Holton. In 1976 after much discussion and debate the neighbors in Riverwest let the authorities know they were against it. Miraculously, the authorities agreed and the neighborhood threw a party to celebrate. They called it the Locust Street Festival of Music and Art. We are still celebrating!
On behalf of the current festival operators, thank you to Peter Wolbersen & Linda Maslow for your years of planning and service to the Locust Street Festival.
