Description [edit]
Constructed in 1882, Turner Hall began as a showplace for the panoramic painters and other German immigrant artists who dominated the Milwaukee art scene until the 1920s and throughout the early 1900s. It is the only building in Milwaukee that currently holds the three following honorary architectural and historical designations: a National Landmark, a listing on the National Registry of Historic Places, and a local Historical Landmark. Located in the heart of downtown, across from the BMO Harris Bradley Center, the two-story, 7,000 - plus square foot Ballroom is a central hub for a vast array of events in Milwaukee.
 
Upcoming events

Sept. 26, 2014
Concert 4 MACC

The inaugural Concert 4 MACC, a benefit event for Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer (The MACC Fund), has secured Cory Chisel and the Wandering Sons and Hugh Bob and the Hustle to co-headline an evening of music, charity and community. Los Colognes, from Nashville, Tenn., will open the Sept. 26 show at Historic Turner Hall Ballroom in Downtown Milwaukee.

Proceeds from the event will go towards the fight against childhood cancer and blood disorders. The MACC Fund recently made headlines by topping the $50 million contributed milestone since its inception in 1976. Over that span, the overall cure rate for childhood cancer has risen from 20 percent to 80 percent.

OnMilwaukee.com is a sponsor of the concert.
