The Locust Street Festival and its accompanying Beer Run couldn’t be a better canvas to paint a portrait of the
Riverwest neighborhood on. The odd collage of entertainment and art will rain
down food, crafts and jewelry on Sunday, set to the tune of live music-making
from Chicken Wire Empire, Ugly Brothers, Platinum Boys, WhiskeyBelles … and the
list keeps going.
The 38th Annual Riverwest
Beer Run (or walk) is a none-too-short 1.8-mile track that takes folks through
the guts of Riverwest and includes four mandatory beer stops (Nessun Dorma,
Lakefront RBC, Falcon Bowl and Dino's). What better incentive to go the extra
mile? Thanks, Milwaukee.
The fest happens between 11:30 a.m. and
8 p.m. on Sunday, June 8. Check out locuststreetfestival.org more details.
