Welcome to Milwaukee County and all we have to offer, from our award-winning parks to our nationally recognized zoo. Every season is wonderful in Wisconsin, but summertime is when things really come alive. Our popular festival season kicks off with Polish Fest at Maier Festival Park. Summerfest, the world's largest music festival, follows in the weeks after that. This year's lineup once again offers up something for every kind of musical taste. For a different kind of art, the Lakefront Festival of Art features 170 jury-selected artists from across the nation. It's been named one of the top 25 art festivals in the country and is a great opportunity to enjoy the Lakefront and the Milwaukee Art Museum. Warmer weather also offers a great opportunity to take advantage of our gorgeous Milwaukee County parks; from golf courses to bike and hiking paths to sun-filled picnic areas and Lake Michigan beaches. Please make sure to enjoy what Milwaukee County has to offer. You, your family and friends will be glad you did. Sincerely, Chris Abele, Milwaukee County Executive The summer sun shines brightly on Milwaukee, and, in this city, we get out and celebrate when the weather is warm. From our lakefront festivals to neighborhood gatherings, the people of Milwaukee have plenty of options to enjoy the season. And visitors are always welcomed! Milwaukee's history is filled with stories of people joining in social events. Various groups of Native people gathered in Milwaukee long before Europeans set foot here. Successive waves of immigrants brought their own celebrations, and nowadays, Milwaukee's ethnic festivals continue the tradition. The city's natural assets provide some of the best locations for summer celebrations. Our Lake Michigan shoreline, our rivers and our renowned park system are all venues for community events. Our investments in festival grounds, RiverWalks, and park amenities add even more life to warm weather events. When you're in Milwaukee, be sure to join the locals at one of our great spring and summer celebrations! Sincerely, Tom Barrett, Mayor Gardens Gardens Boerner Botanical in Whitnall Park Summer brings a grand display of colors and scents to this internationally renowned horticultural showplace. Visit today & smell the roses! 9400 Boerner Drive Hales Corners, WI (414) 525-5600
