Event Details

After taking last summer off from live, in-person events at its gorgeous Peck Pavilion, Marcus Center is bringing concerts and family-friendly film screenings back in 2021. Moreover, they’re doing so by reviving its “Rainbow Summer” series, which Marcus Center says was the city’s “original outdoor entertainment series.”

The series started as the Alewives Jazz Festival in 1975 before being renamed Rainbow Summer in 1981. The series continued to offer live programming in Downtown Milwaukee each summer until 2003. This year’s return will bring a total of 11 events, which range from performances by an eclectic cast of musicians to free screenings of family-friendly films. Check out Marcus Center’s “Rainbow Summer” lineup:
