We’ve rested up and now we’re ready to spend 24 continuous hours in Milwaukee!

Next American City is geared up for a 24:HRS adventure as we explore the streets of Milwaukee, taste some fresh brew and of course, meet the locals! Our 24:HRS Milwaukee trip kicks off at 10 am on Saturday, September 20 at Manpower. Look for local guides Dave Steele and Alex Runner to kick off the first leg of the trip which includes a ride on the waterways on a complimentary ferry ride! At 6 pm, the VITAL Source team including Jon Anne Willow, Amy Elliot and Matt Wild, with Pragmatic Construction’s Juli Kaufmann, will take the reigns and guide participants through the Milwaukee nightlife. The 2 pm guide handoff will be at Chimney Park where Pragmatic Construction has paid a portion of the entrance fees for Wild Space Dance Company’s performance in the Menomonee Valley. Finally, at 2 am, the gang will meet at Milwaukee’s long-time establishment Wolski’s as Jeramey Jannene and David Fockel take the lead for the graveyard shift. You don’t want to miss special access to the clock tour where the group plans to watch the sun rise!

For up to date information on the whereabouts of the 24:HRS group, please call the hotline at 414.305.5242. We will have video, photos and summaries from the trip at americancity.org, so check back to see what we discovered in Milwaukee!
