Though rain put a damper on last year’s festivities, Beet Street Harvest Festival, thankfully, came back for a third year. And it was amazing! Spearheaded by Cactus Club and in association with Goodkind and Palomino, the block party was a day of food, drinks, live music, baking competitions, and festival fun for all ages in Bay View.
From noon to 6 p.m., a chunk of Wentworth Avenue between Goodkind and Cactus Club was blocked off for the occasion. In addition to the music outside, Cactus Club offered local and internationally noted talent all afternoon long, followed by a 21+ after party at the bar. Goodkind opened for brunch, and other food vendors were on hand, too. As always, Palomino hosted the Great Midwestern Pie Championship as well. We couldn’t think of a better way to spend a day in the middle of October.
If you missed it, you messed up. Fortunately, Milwaukee Record was there to take in the third annual Beet Street. Here are just some of the patrons, performers, pies, and other things that helped make Saturday unforgettable. (All photos by Brianna Griepentrog unless otherwise noted.)
