After a year of events that really wasn’t, we’re happy to announce that Harbor Fest will return this year on September 19, 2021. Not only are we excited for the return of this fun, family-friendly street festival, but we’re excited to be hosting the Milwaukee Boat Parade and Sturgeon Fest! That’s right, a three-in-one extravaganza!
On Sunday, September 19th, Harbor District’s annual street festival Harbor Fest will expand, combing the celebration of Milwaukee’s harbor with the Milwaukee Riverkeeper Boat Parade and Sturgeon Fest by Riveredge Nature Center. The festival will be along the 600 block of East Greenfield Avenue, outside of the UWM School of Freshwater Sciences building and Harbor View Plaza.
The vision of Harbor Fest is to reintroduce Milwaukee to its harbor, and the festival offers a wide variety of free, family-friendly activities related to boats, fish, rivers, science, and all the things that make our waterfront great.
And so much more!
Harbor Fest is made possible by generous support from Rockwell Automation, V. Marchese, Inc., Michels Corporation, Komatsu Ltd., Harbor District Business Improvement District (BID 51), Walbec Group, Inc., Milwaukee Airwaves and other sponsors.
