The 6th annual Third Ward Art Festival returns on Saturday, September 2 and Sunday, September 3 from 10:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m., along Broadway street between St. Paul and Menomonee streets in downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

There will also be live music from Parisian singer Michelet and guitar duo Patchouli. Guests can enjoy lunch alfresco, among neighboring restaurants and the Milwaukee Public Market.

We are so pleased to announce that Bright Pink is the charity chosen for the Green Ribbon Project for this festival. Participating artists put the green ribbon on a piece of their choice in their booth and IF the piece is sold the artist agrees to give 10% of the proceeds to Bright Pink.
