Postman's Porch

Delivering Summer Fun

Milwaukee Downtown, BID #21 is delivering summer fun to Postman Square. In partnership with neighborhood businesses and residents, we’re transforming this underutilized traffic triangle into a morning, midday and afterhours meeting spot. Hunker down with a book, challenge your coworker to a game of checkers or dine al fresco with food options from Brunch and Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery. It’s one of the many ways we’re putting our “stamp” on downtown public spaces.

Officially opened to the public on June 4, over one-hundred guests packed Postman's Porch to enjoy food, music, and fun. The program featured performances by the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra brass quartet, and DJ Shawna spinning tunes like "Dear Mr. Postman" and "Signed, Sealed, Delivered I'm Yours." Plus, 55 guests mailed a Milwaukee-themed postcard, courtesy of VISIT Milwaukee, with a commemorative Postman's Porch stamp. Best of all, everything was free!
