What could “Istanpitta,” “The Tempest” and the Holiday Folk Fair International all have in common? They’re all happening this weekend, and Urban Milwaukee has tickets to all three events that we want to give you. That’s right, if you’re an Urban Milwaukee member, you can pick your weekend event(s), on us. It’s first come first served, so you could grab two tickets to more than one event.

Urban Milwaukee is home to Milwaukee’s only news-site membership program, and we are offering a variety of tickets to new members. If you sign up to become a member, we’ll give you two tickets to this weekend’s event of your choice, while our supplies last.
