Discover Milwaukee Tour 2016
We love Milwaukee in all seasons, but there’s something special about summertime in our city. Street festivals, outdoor concerts, farmers markets, beer gardens – summer brings a never ending supply of fun for residents and visitors.
So, all summer long we’ll be out and about. Catching rays, spinning tunes and celebrating all that a Milwaukee summer has to offer. Come find us, say hello, play a game of cornhole and snag a piece of our summertime swag. Scroll down for our summer schedule.
