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 17.

Since this will be the first Bash since 2019, we figured it might be a good idea to organize information about entertainers, beverages, food vendors, retailers, and other aspects of this massive, FREE, and community-focused Bay View block party into one handy guide. You can check out the full lineup, bar locations, and an extensive vendor list below. We’ll see you on Saturday, September 17!
