South 5th Street is hot. Come hang at the fest.

Walker's Point welcomes inaugural 5th Street Fest

On Saturday, Sept. 23 from noon to 10 p.m. the Walker's Point Association and Town Bank will host 5th Street Fest which is, surprisingly, the neighborhood's first signature street festival.

The event will feature food, drink, music and more, showcasing what makes the neighborhood so dynamic and such a wonderful place to live, work and play.

When I moved to Walker's Point in 2011, South 5th Street was a pretty quiet stretch with a few popular Mexican restaurants, a Goth bar, an awesome thrift store (seriously, have you been to Farm Girl?) and a couple of great art galleries.

Within the past few years, the block has erupted with new developments including three breweries – with Brenner Brewing Co. being the first – along with the Fuel, Snifter's, Hamburger Mary's, Juiced!, MobCraft, Urban Harvest and more.

It's become such a destination street that sometimes we wonder if our neck of The Point is getting too hip, but, alas, there is a lot to celebrate and so celebrate we shall.

Stay tuned to OnMilwaukee for more information when lineups and vendors are secured, but for now, prepare for an awesome time. And for anyone who knows me in real life, swing by my place for a beer or a soda.
