SUNDAY, JUNE 9 from Noon – 8pm 

In the early 70’s, Milwaukee planned to widen Locust street between Humboldt and Holton. In 1976 after much discussion and debate the neighbors in Riverwest let the authorities know they were against it. Miraculously, the authorities agreed and the neighborhood threw a party to celebrate. They called it the Locust Street Festival of Music and Art. We are still celebrating!
