Valley Bingo starts this Friday
Participants can win prizes by exploring the Menomonee River Valley
MILWAUKEE – Valley Bingo kicks off on Friday, July 19 at the Harley-Davidson Museum during Gallery Night & Day. Menomonee Valley Partners (MVP), the nonprofit which has led the Menomonee River Valley’s revitalization over the past 20 years, is coordinating Valley Bingo to showcase the Valley’s transformation and invite the community to experience its nature and trails, entertainment destinations, public art, and more.
Valley Bingo is a fun challenge to explore all the Valley has to offer, from urban nature to premier entertainment destinations to award-winning food and drink locations. Each bingo is redeemable for special promotional deals such as buy one, get one beers, burgers, pizza, appetizers, and more. Those who go above and beyond to complete the entire bingo card can enter a raffle to win one of three grand prizes, including a day at the Harley-Davidson Museum or a night at Potawatomi Hotel & Casino.
In honor of 20 years of transformation in the Menomonee River Valley and Menomonee Valley Partners’ 20th anniversary, Valley Bingo features many of the Valley’s redeveloped properties and green spaces that exist thanks this public-private partnership, such as the land where the Harley-Davidson Museum is now located to the 24-acre urban oasis that is Three Bridges Park.

In 1999, Menomonee Valley Partners was founded as a nonprofit organization to facilitate public-private partnership in order to revitalize and sustain the Menomonee River Valley. At that time, the Valley was nearly 1,200 acres of brownfield land and abandoned buildings; today it is a national model of economic and environmental sustainability. In the last 20 years, 52 companies have moved to or expanded in the Valley, developing more than 1 million square feet of sustainably designed buildings and creating more than 5,200 jobs. More than 60 acres of parks and trails, including the Hank Aaron State Trail and Three Bridges Park, have been developed, and 10 million people visit Valley recreation and entertainment destinations annually.
