Cathedral Square Friends continues to lead the efforts to upgrade and enhance Cathedral Square and have brought many improvements to the square in recent years.

We brought back hanging flower baskets to the square after a 25 year absence, which has added some needed color and beauty to the square.

In partnership with Milwaukee Downtown, we led the effort to upgrade the perimeter of the square. This upgrade included new walkways with pavers, and the addition of trees, benches, garbage cans and flower beds.

With this significant improvement to the square now completed we are looking to the future and holding a fundraiser to support our efforts to continue to maintain and enhance the square.

So please join us.

You will enjoy complimentary wine, local craft beer, a specially designed “featured cocktail” or a non alcohol refresher with appetizers provided by Crossroads Collective in the Ascent luxury apartment building’s 25th floor lounge and rooftop deck. Live music will be provided by longtime Jazz in the Park headliner, Christopher’s Project.

The 25th floor lounge and rooftop deck of the Ascent, the tallest mass timber building in the world, features spectacular views of East Town, Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist, and Cathedral Square. It’s the perfect setting for our fundraiser for Cathedral Square.

The event will be held on Wednesday, August 16 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at 700 E. Kilbourn Ave., 25th floor lounge and rooftop deck.

Tickets are $150 ($200 at the door). The funds raised will be used to continue the beautification and maintenance of Milwaukee’s oldest and most iconic square.
