There’s no shortage of great Halloween-adjacent events taking place in and around Milwaukee this year (stay tuned for more on that soon), but one of the longest-running and altogether best holiday happenings in the area is Nightmare On Center Street. Formerly a multi-venue Riverwest music festival of sorts, this year’s installment of the event that started in 2015 will take place exclusively at Company Brewing.
On Saturday, October 28, the Center Street brewery/restaurant/venue will host a wide range of seasonal specials, spectacles, and sounds for Halloweeners of all ages. Things will kick off at 11 a.m. with a “Haunted Brunch,” as well as specialty drinks (including “Blood Bag Cocktails”), and a ghoulish playlist by DJ Fuzzy Logic. This scary-good celebration will also feature a costume contests for pets and kids, a mini maker/vintage market, a brass band, trick of treating, and a giant inflatable trampoline park that will last until the evening.
Inside the property, local bands will cover Blink-182, Lady Gaga, Deftones beginning at 9 p.m. before handing the stage over to Freak On A Leash Fellowship at midnight. There’s going to be a lot going on at Company Brewing, but we can tell you’re intrigued. You can check out the full Nightmare On Center Street schedule HERE.
