The Ornament Trail

The Ornament Trail

Public Art with a Holiday Twist is Now on Display through January 6, 2024

A collection of larger-than-life holiday ornaments have taken over Wisconsin Avenue as part of our 25th anniversary celebration of the Milwaukee Holiday Lights Festival. 15 ornaments have been uniquely hand-painted by a local or national artist with Milwaukee ties, in addition to a dozen oversized ornaments in the Court of Honor median on West Wisconsin Avenue.

We invite you to explore our Ornament Trail along Wisconsin Avenue and Water Street this holiday season. Plus, take advantage of our sweet treat deals at participating downtown restaurants and coffee shops! For locations and our free Ornament Trail Activity Guide, continue to scroll below.
