Summer In the City

Fun In the Sun

Downtown's Ready to Welcome You Back 

MKE It Back for Summer in the City! From returning crowd favorites to a brand-new midweek concert series, Downtown Milwaukee is the place for endless summer fun.

Heading back into the office? We've upped our game for your return. In its inaugural season, Heart(beats) of the City powered by MGIC is set to rock Red Arrow Park every Wednesday from June through August with the area's best bands and food trucks at lunch. Meanwhile, PNC presents Tunes@Noon returns with weekly poolside concerts every Thursday in 411 East Wisconsin Center's courtyard. Plus, mark your calendars for the return of Downtown Employee Appreciation Week, August 15 - 19. 


Looking for even more? We've rounded up downtown's free events, concerts, and markets to help plan your summer calendar! And, if that didn't get your attention, we plan to giveaway a $500 staycation at Saint Kate - The Arts Hotel. See contest details below!
