This week is the fifth annual Bronzeville Week in the Harambee neighborhood, and you can get to know the historic district of Milwaukee through a series of diverse events.

 

The week kicked off on Saturday with the Bronzeville Arts and Culture Festival held on North Ave. between Dr. Martin Luther King Drive and N. 7th St.  The street fair offered free musical entertainment, food and kids activities.

 

And every day this week, there’s something unique to do in the neighborhood, with many of the days offering multiple events.
