As we sit just one fortnight from the start of September, Milwaukee’s once-bountiful batch of summer festivals has dwindled to but a handful. Saturday, September 16 basically doubles as the unofficial end of summer and its one of Milwaukee’s last opportunities in 2017 to listen to live music outside while washing down junk food with tap beer. Soon, fall will descend upon the city, quickly followed by another dreadful winter. The horror! In times like these, it’s important to focus on the things you have. Luckily, if you’re a local looking for a massive block party before bidding the season adieu, you have Bay View Bash.

Entering its 13th year, the Bash will take over a sizable chunk of Kinnickinnic Avenue in Bay View and offer those in attendance an abundance of fried food, beer from various local breweries, goods from area retailers, and 10 straight hours of music (and other entertaining demos) coming from four different stages. With less than a month standing between now and the event, we’re thrilled to say we finally have Bay View Bash’s full music and events lineup. Here it is!
