Garfield Avenue Blues, Jazz, Gospel & Arts Festival

Garfield Days

Garfield’s 502 is the anchor of one of Milwaukee’s best festivals.

This amazing neighborhood celebration features a Youth Talent Show, outstanding stages of live music, and a variety of entertainment for the whole family to enjoy.

The Garfield Avenue Blues, Jazz, Gospel & Arts Festival was founded in 1997 by local businessmen Everette “Bobbie” Moore, Attorney Tom Jacobson and LaMarr Franklin as a way to show appreciation to their loyal customers. Garfield Days, as most know it, started as a half day, two block festival. Over its 20+ years the event has grown to become a entertainment filled celebration spanning 6 blocks, showcasing over 150 vendors and local bands, and attracting over 20,000 people every year.
