German Fest
Milwaukee's German Fest, North America's largest German celebration, provides an ample supply of lederhosen, polkas and pilsner, but it also prides itself on being the most traditional German event in North America.
Help us pick foods to try
Among the new dishes being offered at the Wisconsin State Fair, there appear to be a variety of themes -- from new breakfast items, to bacon, unicorns and even (erp!) bugs. But, which ones should Lori Fredrich, our Dining Editor, try and review this year?
Milwaukee Brewfest
Milwaukee hosts a beer festival on the lakefront that promises craft brew with a picturesque view. Milwaukee Brewfest is Saturday, July 29, featuring unlimited samplings from more than 100 breweries, and the 2017 edition will celebrate the city's proud brewing history.
