The summer festival season kicked off with the first lakefront fest of the season, PrideFest. For over 25 years PrideFest has been celebrating LGBT culture and community and this year’s festival was the largest to date. Music headliners included Sophie B. Hawkins, Andy Bell, the Indigo Girls and Amanda Palmer among hundreds of local and regional musicians, dance groups, comedians, and drag performers. Over 28,000 attended the world’s largest volunteer-run Pride Festival.

Farmers markets are now in full swing and there are numerous options in and around the Milwaukee area. The West Allis Farmer’s Market is one of the largest with their permanent space at 65th and National. Now is the time to get your garden set with flowers and herbs to enjoy all summer long. The West Allis Farmers Market is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12pm-6pm and Saturdays from 1pm-6pm. Opening later in the day gives the farmer’s the opportunity to sell the freshest goods picked just that morning. Read about many of the area markets in TCD’s Farmer’s Market Guide.

Sunday | Locust Street Festival

The 37th Annual Locust Street Festival took place Sunday, June 9, which began with its annual Beer Run/Walk (A 1.8 mile route with four mandatory beer stops) at 11:30 a.m. sharp.  There wasn’t any shortage of excitement after the beer run, with an all day non-stop music and dancing celebration, including 30 plus bands and six stages. Over 100 artists also provided entertainment, with live painting and artworks to be sold. Numerous jewelry and clothing vendors along with delicious food and beer stands also added to the lively day in Riverwest.
