Since 2011, Bay View Gallery Night has organized “Milwaukee’s largest annual celebration of art, local business, music, and community.” The massive neighborhood-wide event brings together talented area artists and musicians, along with an eclectic mix of Milwaukee bars, restaurants and retailers for a large-scale event that has quickly become a part of the Bay View tradition. It’s free. It’s fun. It’s locally-focused. What more can you ask for?

The COVID-19 crisis caused last year’s installment to be canceled. However, Bay View Gallery Night will officially be returning in 2021, with a 10th anniversary edition set to take place on Friday, June 25. In addition to announcing the date of this year’s BVGN over the weekend, organizers also put out a request for businesses in and around Bay View to participate in the multi-site event. Businesses interested in featuring an artist’s work and/or sponsoring Bay View Gallery Night can get more information on how to participate HERE.

Check back for the full schedule as the event approaches. In the meantime, set aside the night of June 25 because Bay View Gallery Night is coming back!
