MPS All-City Arts Festival

Students and Arts

Featuring music, dance, art, and theater performances by elementary, middle, and high school students

In collaboration with Milwaukee World Festival, Inc. and the Summerfest Foundation, Inc., Milwaukee Public Schools presents the MPS All-City Arts Festival! 

This three-day event will take place at Henry Maier Festival Park located at 200 North Harbor Drive, Milwaukee, Wisconsin on May 9-11, 2018.

Building on the success of the Biennial Music Festival, the MPS All-City Arts Festival is now expanding to showcase all art forms offered in City of Milwaukee schools. This event will involve students from all regions at the elementary, middle, and high school levels presenting music, dance, art, and theater performances. This work is supported and enhanced by the number of partnerships among various public and private schools, artists, arts organizations, and the community.

In its 47th year, the MPS All-City Arts Festival will be the exciting finale to the Year of the Arts in Milwaukee Public Schools. All are welcome to cheer on our city's talented youth on its most famous stage.
