Milwaukee Day

Special Event

On April 14 (aka 414 – Milwaukee’s area code), Milwaukeeans celebrate the people, places, businesses, and spirit that make the city unique. Whether you’re a 414 resident for life or just happen to be in town on this most auspicious day, it’s the perfect excuse to do something Totally Milwaukee! These 14 activities are also great ways to keep the Milwaukee Day spirit alive all year long.
