You wanted the return of Milwaukee summer festivals? You got the return of Milwaukee summer festivals. Yes, Brady Street Festival is coming back!

Brady Street Festival will include three stages of Milwaukee music, plus a host of vendors and activities.

Brady Street BID released the 2022 Brady Street Festival entertainment lineup today and it’s a doozy.
