Locust Street Festival of Music and Art

June 11, 2023 All day

After a four-year hiatus, Locust Street Festival once again celebrates Milwaukee’s vibrant Riverwest neighborhood through live music on six stages, art, food and beer. The 1.6-mile Beer Run Race begins at 11:30am. 

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!
