This is going to be hard to believe ... but the weather is actually supposed to get nice soon. We know, we didn't think that could happen either: Summer might actually be starting. (Spring just ... isn't happening this year?)

One of the best ways to make the most of your Great Milwaukee Summer? Join the OnMilwaukee Squad

The OnMilwaukee Squad is a new premium membership program bringing you beyond the website. For just $7.99 a month (or $79.99 for the entire year), Squad members score even greater access to OnMilwaukee and the city we all love, getting bonus content, discounts around town, and early access to fun events and special opportunities – such as, for instance, a chance to join us on a summery Edelweiss river cruise next week.

It's not a paywall; everyone is still getting the same OnMilwaukee they've always gotten for almost 25 years. By joining the Squad, you simply get even more – on and beyond your screen. 

What else? For starters ...

Early access and discounted tickets to events and activities, including:

  • Food Truck Fest
  • Adult Spelling Bee
  • Hill Bill
  • Milwaukee Taco Fest
  • BBQ Fest
  • Donut & Coffee Fest
  • Wing Fest
  • OnMilwaukee OnVacay
  • Free movie premiere tickets

And exclusive access to behind-the-scenes content, such as:

  • Special contests for members only
  • “Story Behind The Story” series and new custom email newsletters
  • Links to exclusive articles before they are available to the public
  • A free gift from OnMilwaukee after three months of continuous membership
  • Signed copy of Urban Spelunking hardcover book (with an annual membership)
