Milwaukee Record officially launched on April 7, 2014. For those of you keeping track at home, that means this coming Sunday marks exactly TEN YEARS of us being a business. What a ride! In honor of our milestone anniversary, the City of Milwaukee has officially proclaimed Sunday, April 7, 2024 to be “Milwaukee Record Day.” The office of Mayor Cavalier Johnson issued the following Proclamation stating as much:

The City of Milwaukee proudly joins family, friends and community members in celebrating Milwaukee Record’s 10th Anniversary on Sunday, April 7, 2024; and,

WHEREAS, Milwaukee Record, operated by Tyler Maas and Matt Wild since 2014, has been a steadfast champion of all things Milwaukee, through its coverage of music, arts, dining, and sports and by telling the stories of countless residents of Milwaukee and southeastern Wisconsin; and,

WHEREAS, Milwaukee Record enriches the community by producing and hosting dozens of events annually, including music series and comedy shows, monthly film screenings, large-scale civic celebrations and by having a presence at many of the city of Milwaukee’s summer festivals; and,

WHEREAS, Milwaukee Record has donated more than $30,000 of proceeds from sales, events and fundraising efforts to local organizations in the Milwaukee area; and,

WHEREAS, Milwaukee Record has celebrated Milwaukee’s history while also documenting the transformation that Milwaukee has undergone since Milwaukee Record started, serving as a local archive, regional resource and a trusted news outlet for an ever-changing city; and,

WHEREAS, The City of Milwaukee congratulates Milwaukee Record on its outstanding achievement and wishes them many more years of enriching the Milwaukee community; and,

NOW, THEREFORE, I, CAVALIER JOHNSON, Mayor of the City of Milwaukee, do hereby proclaim Sunday, April 7, 2024, to be Milwaukee Record Day throughout the City of Milwaukee.
