Milwaukee’s Rock the Green festival will return for a third year on Sept. 17 to a new venue – Reed Street Yards on Freshwater Way. The near-zero waste festival began in 2011 and was held on the lakefront in Milwaukee’ Veterans Park.
On July 18 at 7:30am, 88Nine Radio Milwaukee will announce the lineup for the festival. Tickets for the festival will also go on sale that day. 88Nine Radio Milwaukee is proud to be the primary media partner of Rock The Green.
A range of local restaurants and food vendors will bring locally grown, sustainable and healthy food options in the Farm to Fork area, a pedal-powered stage will feature Wisconsin bands, and the Eco-Champs area will showcase local environmental nonprofits. There will also be a new Eco-Kids stage and interactive area complete with children’s activities, programming and music.
“The mission of Rock the Green is to protect and preserve our city’s natural resources, which would not be possible without the support and collaboration from our wonderful sponsors, volunteers and community organizations,” said Lindsay Stevens Gardner, founder and executive director,
Rock the Green. “Milwaukee is full of innovative and sustainable companies, and we’re thrilled to receive backing from these organizations that support our mission.”
