The Brady Street Business Improvement District (BID #11) will host the Brady Street Festival Saturday, July 30, 11 a.m. to midnight. The Festival takes place on Brady Street from Van Buren to Farwell Avenue. This year’s musical line up will feature local acts on three stages and cuts across many genres providing an awesome experience for everyone. In between acts there is a wide variety of all-local food and vendors to visit.
This year’s headliners are a mix of Brady St. favorites like the annual Drag Show, Brady Street Babes, and Milwaukee’s best local bands. Paper Holland takes the Budlight/Absolut center stage at 9:30 p.m. with their good old fashioned, windows-down indie rock. Pop/rap crossover Vincent VanGreat & Ninja Sauce with Amanda Huff will perform at the North Shore Bank east stage at 9 p.m.
Start the morning off right! At 11:30 a.m. on the east end of Brady join MKE Yoga Social for Dog Yoga at the North Shore Bank east stage. DJ Christreater from WMSE will start the party at the Casamigo west stage. The warm sounds of Brazilian guitarist and singer Octavio Arcanjo will start off the BudLight/Absolut center stage.
