After careful consideration, the Locust Street Festival of Music & Art, and the event that kicks it off, the Riverwest Beer Run, have both been cancelled for 2021.  Known as one of Milwaukee’s most popular, diverse, and longest-running street festivals, this was to be the event’s 45th year.  This is the second consecutive year that Locust Street Festival has been cancelled.

While the severity of the Covid-19 virus has been reduced in recent months, the Festival committee made the decision that it’s again best to cancel this year’s festival, than to risk the health and safety of its attendees, artisans, staff, and organizers.   It was scheduled for Sunday, June 13th, 2021.  With the cancellation, the Locust Street Festival and Riverwest Beer Run will next take place on Sunday, June 12, 2022.
