Quite simply, Milwaukee Day celebrates everything positive in Milwaukee, and everyone making a tangible difference to further pride in our great community. While we feel every day should be Milwaukee Day in the 414 area code, we go all out on April 14th of every year, 4/14. What started as a pun among a few friends has taken on a life of its own in only four years, and the small organization invites everyone who loves our city to celebrate in a way that’s safe, fun, and creative, amplifying everything that makes Milwaukee awesome every day.
