Join the Milwaukee Press Club in celebrating Milwaukee’s 174th Birthday Party:

Milwaukee will be in the national spotlight this year as the Democratic National Convention comes to our city. The 174th City of Milwaukee Birthday Party will celebrate the people, places and things that make our city “Unconventional.” Join the Milwaukee Press Club on Thursday, January 30, 2020 as we toast to Unconventional Milwaukee.

The event will kick-off with a special toast from Governor Tony Evers and Lt. Governor Mandela Barnes and Mayor Tom Barrett will lead guests in a birthday serenade to our city. Event admission includes the opportunity to network with fellow Milwaukeans, gourmet food stations by Bartolotta Catering, complimentary beer, birthday cake and gift to take home.
