7 Things to Do in Milwaukee This Weekend: September 17-19

The last weekend of Summerfest and a bike tour await you this weekend in Milwaukee.

1. Summerfest

FRIDAY AND SATURDAY | SUMMERFEST GROUNDS

It’s the last weekend for this historic year of Summerfest. If you have not already stopped by the grounds for some drinks and music, make sure you stop by to take in the views and tunes. 

2. Capitol Steps: The Lyin’ Kings

FRIDAY AT 7 P.M. | PABST THEATER

The Capitol Steps are all previous senate staffers that seek to satirize the current political climate through song and skits. They are performing at Pabst Theater to perform songs and skits from their latest album, The Lyin’ Kings.

3. Port Washington Farmers’ Market

SATURDAY FROM 9 A.M TO 1 P.M. | E. MAIN STREET

Stop by Port Washington for some fresh produce from local farmers or some handmade products from area artisans. Take in the view of Lake Michigan while you grab grub.

 

 

4. Cupcake Decorating

SATURDAY AT 10 A.M. | ARTS @ LARGE COMMUNITY CENTER

The Arts @ Large Community Center is offering a free class on the art of cupcake decorating from culinary artist Letasha Smith. No registration is required. 

5. Milwaukee History and Beer Garden Tour

SATURDAY AT 11 A.M | MILWAUKEE COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY

Milwaukee is a city known for its biking scene and breweries. So it makes sense that someone would combine them both into a tour of some of Milwaukee’s most prominent beer gardens. Tickets can be purchased online and all proceeds will go to supporting the Milwaukee County Historical Society.

6. Prosit Tosa

SATURDAY FROM 1-8 P.M. | KNEELAND-WALKER, WAUWATOSA

The Wauwatosa Historical Society is hosting an Oktoberfest-themed fundraiser called Prosit Tosa. There will be live music, beer, pretzels and other delicious food from Kegel’s Inn. There will also be fun activities in the kids area, so bring the whole family. 

7. Algiers

SUNDAY AT 8 P.M. | CACTUS CLUB

Algiers is a rock ‘n’ roll band from Atlanta that has opened for artists like Depeche Mode. The tour for their second album lasted two years and took them all over Europe. Algiers stops by The Cactus on their tour for their third album, There Is No Year.
