15 Photos from Brady St. Festival

If you weren’t among the crowds at Brady Street Festival this weekend, we have photos to make that FOMO a little better (or worse?).

The all-day party, otherwise known as Brady Street Festival, rocked the street on Saturday, July 28, from 11 a.m. to midnight. Even though the weather was a little on the hot side, the crowd was thick with festival-goers and neighbors alike, and there were plenty of areas to sit, food to eat, beverages to drink and music to hear.

The food was nothing short of spectacular.

Maybe, but we don’t think so.Another great find: custom Wisconsin art pieces by the James Steeno Gallery.Everyone can agree that this festival is unique. In addition to typical merchandise and food vendors, there were plenty of other interactive booths, like this henna station.Even custom balloon animals for the kiddos!Did we mention FOUR stages of live music ALL day?It was a toasty day out, so festival-goers cooled down with popsicles from  Chillwaukee. This one’s strawberry lemonade-flavored. #yumThe Adventure Rock climbing wall was intense, but this kid made it to the top.Almost every restaurant and bar had a sidewalk set-up with lots of adult beverages to sip on.
