Local Talent

Friday, April 19, 7–11 PM

Presented by Northwestern Mutual

Beer, cheese, and festivals? Sure, but there’s so much more to love about The Good Land. In April, we’re partnering with Summerfest and turning up our hometown pride, in honor of 414 Day. Jam out to popular MKE bands, explore handcrafted works by a Wisconsin artist, and raise a glass (or two!) of your favorite local brew to celebrate the place we call home.
