Now that spring has fully arrived and we’re probably not going to have any more snow for a few months [knocks on wood], we can finally start to look forward to some of the fun outdoor activities that help make Milwaukee and its surrounding cities such a special place to live.
Today, South Milwaukee Performing Arts Center (in association with South Milwaukee Downtown Market) announced the wide array of performers who will be taking the stage at the city’s farmers market this year. Beginning June 3 and running each and every Thursday through October 7, South Milwaukee Downtown Market’s “Music At The Market” series will host a different act from 5-7 p.m. Included in the vast and varied lineup are local favorites like MilBillies and Extra Crispy Brass Band, out of town talent like Reverend Raven & the Chain Smokin’ Altar Boys and Madtown Mannish Boys, and even an opening day performance by Prof. Pinkerton’s Irrelevant Trio.
There is no cover and people of all ages are able to attend. Check out the full lineup below, and go to South Milwaukee Downtown Market’s website for more information on the “Music At The Market” music series.
