Metro Milwaukee’s Weekend Festivals Guide: July 8-11

There’s a little something for everyone in Southeast Wisconsin this weekend when it comes to festivals.

Each festival is unique on its own, but all offer the same thing – boundless fun for all ages. Check out this weekend’s festival guide:


Bastille Days (Cathedral Square Park, Milwaukee)

Bastille Days is the biggest French festival in North America, celebrating the French Independence Day with plenty of food, beverage, music, street performers and family activities. Don’t miss the extravagant 43-foot replica of the Eiffel Tower, either!
