Even though most of Milwaukee’s major festivals are now in the rear view mirror, one of the city’s biggest and best undertakings is still on the horizon. Yes, Bay View Bash will make its long-awaited return to Kinnickinnic Avenue on Saturday, September 16.

Since there’s a lot of stuff that will be happening on the long stretch of street between Clement Ave. and Potter Ave., we figured it might be a good idea to organize information about entertainers, beverages, food vendors, retailers, and some other aspects of this massive, FREE, and community-focused Bay View block party into one handy guide. You can check out the full lineup, a beer list, and an extensive vendor list below. We’ll see you on Saturday, September 16!

Other Entertainment

The fun will actually start before the Bash technically begins. Starting at 10 a.m., folks are encouraged to bring their pets with them to take part in the Bay View Bash Pet Parade. The parade will start off at Immaculate Conception Church, so meet there shortly before 10 if you and your furry (or scaly) friend wish to be involved.

Bay View Community Center is also booking and sponsoring a Family Area, which will offer entertainment for all ages in the Immaculate Conception Church parking lot throughout the day.


Unlike previous installments—in which different breweries had their own beer stands at different parts of the block party—all the beer stands will serve an eclectic array of local and domestic beer, craft seltzers, canned water, and soda. This year marks the debut of Bash Bräu, a Bay View Bash-specific Kölsch-style ale that was brewed by Central Waters Brewing. Proceeds from Bash Bräu sales will benefit non-profits in the 53207 zip code. All beverages will be served in cans for the sake of environmental sustainability. Here’s the full drink list!

Central Waters Oktoberfest
Central Waters Bash Bräu
Central Waters Seltzers
Third Space Happy Place
Third Space Frog Weiss
Bud Light
New Glarus Spotted Cow
New Glarus IPA
Liquid Death Mountain Water
Sprecher Root Beer

We know this will fall on deaf ears for many of you, but please don’t carry in beverages. Bay View Bash is a free community event that’s executed by volunteers (sign up to volunteer HERE). Purchases help directly support this event and will ensure the Bash will be able to continue for years to come.
