What’s better than soaking up the sun and scoping out the best vintage (plus plenty of other fun stuff) that Milwaukee has to offer? That's exactly what'll happen Saturday, June 18 with Flight Day, hosted by Plume Vintage, with loads of fun things to do and buy.
Plume owner Maggie Solveson has owned her Bay View storefront at 3001 S. Kinnickinnic Ave. for four years now and dedicates her time to curating one of the best vintage collections the city has to offer. With her focus always being to connect with her local community, she created Flight Day.
The day-long festival will take place this Saturday, June 18 from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. and will feature the best of Milwaukee’s vintage vendors, artists and musicians.
The goal of the event is to support inclusivity for local businesses in Milwaukee and highlight diverse creators as well as participants who have come from all over the Midwest.
The festival will fill the entire block in front of Plume with vendors boasting various items. Drinks will be provided by Blackbird Bar starting at noon and will allow attendees to sit back and relax on their patio. A new mural painted by local artist Emma Daisy will also be displayed there by the end of summer.
In addition, beginning at 4 p.m., Immy’s African Cuisine will serve some of their most renowned dishes like smoked jerk chicken and goat curry. Yadeem’s on the Go! will attend the whole day as well, serving hot dogs and vegan options.
And to keep the vibes going throughout the day, Solveson hand-selected some of her favorite Milwaukee musicians to perform at Flight Day, including Delilac, Fancy Nancy and GetMoses – who will open for Atmosphere during Summerfest.
