Locust Street Festival, Beer Run/Walk return in June

Locust Street Festival

Locust Street Festival returns to Milwaukee's Riverwest neighborhood Sunday, June 12. It had been canceled the past two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The festival, held on Locust between Humbolt and Holton, will feature six outdoors music stages with local bands performing and more than 100 arts, crafts, food and drink vendors.

More than 15,000 people are expected to take part.
