Discover Downtown: Markets & Music

This might be my favorite feature yet for my Milwaukee Downtown #CYAdowntown feature! Milwaukee Downtown always has a bunch of stuff going on... but these 4 events happen weekly ALL SUMMER LONG. So, if you haven't hit them up yet, now is the time!

Let's start with farmer's markets:

EAST TOWN MARKET: Happens every Saturday from 9am-1pm in Cathedral Square. Vendors range from farmers to bakers & craftsmen. Also, there is a free yoga class, which is MEGA fun

WESTOWN MARKET: Happens every Wednesday from 10am-3pm. It's located on Michigan between 3rd and 4th street.. you can't miss it! Again, an excellent variety of vendors and always a few food trucks, too!

But, if farmer's markets aren't your thing.. maybe live music is! On both Wednesdays and Thursdays there is live outdoor music that I promise you will love.

Wednesdays is RIVER RHYTHMS, which takes place at Pere Marquette Park. It starts at 6:30 and there are only a couple weeks of this left, so be sure to head over there if you have a Wednesday free in August.

Thursdays is JAZZ IN THE PARK, which happens in Cathedral Square. Happy hour starts at 5, music starts at 6.. and again, it TOTALLY worth getting there! 

These weekly events throughout the summer really keep Milwaukee alive! If you head to one, snap a picture and tag it with #CYAdowntown. If you tweet it at me (@trendytessaMKE), I will be sure to give you a Milwaukee Downtown prize pack!

Enjoy the last bits of summer with these AWESOME events (oh, by the way.. did I mention they are all FREE!?!?!) ...I can't wait to #CYAdowntown!
