The calendar may say summer is over, but not in Milwaukee. September begins with Indian Summer Festival, the largest Native American cultural event of its kind in the U.S., and ends with the California-like 42nd Wine & Harvest Festival in Cedarburg.

Business and leisure travelers are sure to enjoy crew racing throughout downtown Milwaukee in the Milwaukee River Challenge, challenging rounds on the state’s great golf courses, or one of the best steakhouses in the U.S. And don’t forget the Milwaukee Brewers, bidding for a Major League Baseball playoff berth before full houses at Miller Park.

Our arts & entertainment calendar again is growing. Milwaukee’s theatre companies begin their seasons this month, with exceptional productions and milestones like the 40th anniversary season of the Milwaukee Chamber Theatre. And, as always, the month brings distinctive arts events like the Paramount Blues Festival in Grafton and the Hidden River Art Festival in Brookfield’s Wilson Center.

Savor some of the best weather of the year with this extension of summer, September in Milwaukee.
