The Milwaukee Avenue Arts Festival takes place along 1.2 miles of the Milwaukee Avenue commercial corridor, transforming storefronts into gallery spaces which feature dozens of visual and performance artists to the public. Several stages along the route feature a diverse line-up of critically-acclaimed musical talent, local businesses sell delicious cuisine, family-friendly activities are set up to entertain all ages, and multiple beer gardens cater to the adults in the audience.
