Following a more than two-year gap, Burnhearts once again curated a winning wintry mix of live music, rare and delicious craft beer, tasty food and barrel-aged cocktails, and charity that all came together outdoors to form “Mitten Fest” this past Saturday. Though a lot has changed since the last Mitten Fest, the event remained as awesome as always.
In spite of the frigid conditions, Burnhearts Mitten Fest 2022 brought in considerable cash donations to Hunger Task Force. Dozens of beer kegs and barrels of brandy were enjoyed by thousands of festivalgoers who gathered on a few Bay View blocks on Saturday to watch Gego y Nony, Guerrilla Ghost, Telethon, No Seatbelts, and Nile. In short, it was great. Though we could mention our favorite moments, perhaps pictures would do a better job illustrating the spirit of Milwaukee’s favorite winter party.
