1 – Artstreet 2016, Friday August 26th through Sunday, August 28th, Downtown Green Bay

Be a part of the Artstreet experience! Artstreet has been bringing art out of studios, galleries and museums for 35 years. Stroll the streets of downtown Green Bay and encounter the works of 200 fine artists from throughout the country. A great way to explore amazing artwork, meet fellow art fans, and explore the downtown area.

Take in music, dance, and theatrical performances. View artists demonstrating their work during the creative process. Savor an array of specialty foods. Enjoy cultural displays, children’s art activities, and more. A great Green Bay Tradition.

2 – Hinterland Brewery 21st Anniversary, Saturday, August 27th, 1:00 to 10:00, Hinterland Brewery

21 fantastic years of brewing for our friends and neighbors in Green Bay and beyond. We’re celebrating by throwing another party with great beer, delicious food, and killer bands! Here are some of the details:

They will be releasing our 21st Anniversary beer…a limited release of a very special blend of several bourbon barrel-aged beers. This will be unique, complex, and ridiculously delicious.

Chef Kelly Qualley will be preparing a creative menu:
-Porchetta Sandwich with arugula, pickled onion, pesto goat cheese spread
-Packerland Pilsner Cheddar Bratwurst with super relish, beer mustard
-Shrimp and Whitefish Ceviche with tortilla chips, lime, cilantro

We’re extremely excited about the music this year… The Chocolateers are returning again with their roots, rock garage band feel and Dead Soldiers from Memphis, TN. We think you’ll dig their blend of bluegrass, rock, and blues as much as we do. In the heart of the historic On Broadway district.
