Happy Birthday, Downtown West Allis!

Updated: Aug 13, 2019

This August, we're celebrating a milestone in West Allis Downtown. 30 years ago this month, a group of business and property owners, citizens, and workers got together to form the Downtown West Allis Business Improvement District. This organization focuses on the support of small businesses and the viability of our neighborhood (Greenfield Avenue between 70th and 76th). To celebrate, we're going through the ABC's of West Allis Downtown!

A La Carte- West Allis A La Carte is the biggest non-fair park event in the city, bringing approximately 12,000 people to the downtown annually!

Benches- This year, the Downtown created the Art Bench Trail by having local artists paint each of the benches. Each bench has a line from an original poem written by Milwaukee Poet, Keith Gaustad.
