Celebrate the longest day of the year on the East Side with our 18th Annual Summer Soulstice Music Festival
Kick the day off with The Urban 108 at Summer Soulstice Music Festival
— yoga with our friends from Urban OM
In addition to THREE STAGES of music, enjoy favorites like BMX Stunt Bikes, mini-golf from Nine Below
, a climbing wall from Adventure Rock MKE
, and roller skate dancing from Roll Train
Art-lovers can enjoy FIVE artists live-painting large panels of «Soul» that will hang this summer in Black Cat Alley
. And for the kids, illustrator and professor (and Black Cat Alley artist) Tim Decker and his assistants will personally sketch an animal of choice for kids to paint and take with them… a little piece of Black Cat Alley for home.
Shoppers can stroll through a WIDE variety of unique MIlwaukee makers ranging from beautiful art and wearables to Milwaukee-inspired candles and unique gifts. Curated in part by The Waxwing
, this vendor village will be a festival of art all its own.
Feeling hungry? We have over 15 food vendors including many East Side favorites. Plus, with beer from Miller Lite
, Lakefront Brewery
, and more… it's a well-rounded day of treats.
Don't forget the piece de la resistance… the MUSIC! Each group has been hand-selected to showcase the best of Milwaukee's music scene.
