1) Drink Wisconsinbly’s Inaugural Curd Fest (all ages?)
Saturday 06/17: Drink Wisconsinbly Pub (Harbor View); 10am – 8pm (free?)

The City of Festivals adds another, one that’s been sorely missed. Drink Wisconsinbly is throwing a cheese curd fest, complete with live polka music and a cheese curd eating contest. Remember, just like The Squeaky Curd website: don’t be afraid of the squeak, it just means they’re fresh.

2) Good City Fest: 1 Year Anniversary Party (21+?)
Saturday 06/17: Good City Brewing Company (Lower East Side); 10am – 10pm (free)

The City of Festivals adds another…another. Good City Brewing Company has been blowing up Milwaukee’s craft beer scene for only 1 year, but their success makes it seem like much longer. Come celebrate their 365 days of brewing accomplishments with special release beers, serious local live music acts, and a look at their upcoming expansion.

3) Lakefront Festival of Art 2017 (all ages)
Friday-Sunday 6/16-18: Milwaukee Art Museum grounds (East Town); 10am – 5pm ($17)

Okay, this festival has been around for a while. The Milwaukee Art Museum is back with it’s highly acclaimed weekend Lakefront Festival of the Arts. Tons of food and drinks to be had while you peruse the outdoor tents set up around the museum grounds full of artwork, both for display and for purchase.
