Wisconsin Avenue's Stunning Stretch

The lights along Downtown Milwaukee’s main street guide your way with glittering chandeliers and harp lamps embellished with decorative sculptures throughout. As you tour along the Avenue, by car or on foot, take a gander at the festive décor within each business and storefront. Looks like everyone is feeling the warmth and joy of the holiday season.

Ornament Trail

Larger-than-life holiday ornaments have taken over Wisconsin Avenue to commemorate the 25th anniversary 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 brand-new ornament display 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!
