A whole lotta Milwaukee summer festivals are returning in 2022, and so is “The People’s Holiday.”

Yep, the Riverwest 24 is back! A real-deal, in-person Riverwest 24! The 24-hour bike ride and neighborhood party is set for July 29-30, 7 p.m. to 7 p.m. In-person registration begins May 15 at 10 a.m. at Garden Park and Black Husky Brewing. Find more information HERE.

The Riverwest 24 was canceled in 2020, though some chose to ride the Riverwest streets informally. The 2021 ride, meanwhile, was a near-complete return to form.

Other Milwaukee summer festivals returning in 2022 include Locust Street Festival (June 12), Summer Soulstice (June 18), Brady Street Festival (July 30), Center Street Daze (August 13), and Fromm Petfest (September 24). Summerfest will be back, too, June 23-25, June 30 – July 2, and July 7-9.
