Berettafest 2018 Milwaukee, WI – June 28th – July 1st
Congratulations to our Berettafest location winner, Mike Pride, on his Milwaukee, Wisconsin proposal. Berettafest last visited Milwaukee in 2003, and we hope to see you all there again in 2018!
Berettafest 2018, June 28th – July 1st in Milwaukee, WI!
Located on the shores of Lake Michigan, Milwaukee is perhaps best known for its famous breweries and the Major League Brewers, but there’s more to the city than beer and baseball. Milwaukee is rich in historical and cultural attractions, making it the perfect place for a weekend of exploring. Check out the newly expanded Milwaukee Art Museum or the Mitchell Park Horticultural Society, which hosts an annual show of the same flora and fauna seen in Georgia O’Keefe’s paintings.
Those interested in the city’s history can visit the grand Pabst Mansion, former home of one of the city’s famous beer barons, or the Milwaukee Public Museum, to see what life was like in Old Milwaukee. If the kids are along, don’t miss the Milwaukee County Zoo or the Betty Brinn Children’s Museum. Of course a trip to the “Genuine American City” would not be complete without a tour of the Miller Brewing Company and a Brewers game at Miller Park.
Milwaukee is also home to Summerfest! Following its 1968 debut, Summerfest has evolved into what is now recognized as “The World’s Largest Music Festival” and Milwaukee’s cornerstone summer celebration, bringing the music industry’s hottest stars, emerging talent and local favorites along with approximately 900,000 people from Milwaukee and around the world together each year for an unforgettable live music experience. During the festival, the spotlight shines on 800 bands, 11 stages, delectable food and beverages and interactive activities, all in a world-class festival setting.
