Help us celebrate at the city’s 173rd birthday. Join us at the Milwaukee Press Club’s signature event, the City Birthday Party, on January 31st at The Grain Exchange. Not only will we toast the city’s celebrity status, we’ll recognize the people who are putting Milwaukee on the map.

The celebration will highlight Milwaukee’s history and celebrate its renaissance that is making our city a destination spot for many. Earlier this year, Milwaukee was profiled in the pages of Vogue magazine, where writer Christina Perez called our city an “unexpected gem.”

As our city becomes nationally recognized as “Milwaukee en Vogue, the Milwaukee Press Club wants the public to nominate leaders behind this year’s biggest cover stories.  Who is pushing Milwaukee toward a brighter future and creating important cover stories for our community. Winning nominees will be honored at the event.gest cover
