The flurry of summer activity that launched in June continues in July. “The City of Festivals” truly deserves its name, as Festa Italiana takes over the Henry W. Maier Festival Park (Summerfest Grounds).

Bastille Days turns the East Town area into Paris, while Brady Street Festival is one of the most popular neighborhood fests in Milwaukee. These festivals provide live entertainment, fun food and great shopping as well as the opportunity to tour the city’s varied and eclectic neighborhoods.

Summerfest continues until July 6, and our Arts & Entertainment listing has the headliners.

This month and throughout the summer visitors enjoy the many outdoor markets, selling fresh produce and locally produced items. And the price is right at the metro area’s free summer concerts almost every evening.

The Milwaukee Brewers continue their surge, and you can schedule your visit to Miller Park by visiting sports.

It’s a great time to be a sports player as well as a “fan in the stands.” KEY’s golf writer Jerry Slaske points his driver at a new favorite spot of his in this month’s golf.

There’s more to look forward to. As July ends, one of our favorites—the Wisconsin State Fair – opens on July 31 and continues through August 10. Pet a pig and enjoy food on a stick!
