Things To Do In Milwaukee In December
It’s getting colder here in Milwaukee, so we’ve got a list of fun things to do this December that will keep you happy and warm.
1. CATCH A SHOW
Potawatomi Hotel & Casino has a beautiful, intimate theater setting for anyone 21 and over to enjoy. The 500-seat venue features two bars with cocktail service and on-site access to seven dining options for a nice meal before or after the show.
December holiday shows at The Northern Lights Theater include:
- More Holiday Tales with John McGivern – December 1, 7, 8
- The Colors of Christmas with Peabo Bryson, Taylor Dayne, Jon Secada and Deniece Williams – December 3
- Phil Vassar & Lonestar: The Not So Silent Night Tour – December 5
- Melissa Etheridge: The Holiday Show – December 11, 12
2. SEE THE LIGHTS
Milwaukee Holiday Lights Festival is celebrating its 20th year! You and your family can take a 40-minute Jingle Bus ride around downtown Milwaukee and see the most decorated areas. These buses run Thursday-Sunday evenings from 6-8:20 p.m. through December 30, 2018. The cost to ride is only $2 each! (Cash only.)
3. VISIT THE MUSEUM
Every year Milwaukee Public Museum decorates the Streets of Old Milwaukee and turns the exhibit into a holiday wonderland. Storefronts will be updated and adorned in traditional seasonal flair – there will be wreaths, ribbons, garland, holly, bell pulls, and more!
The holiday theme in the Streets of Old Milwaukee exhibit runs through January 22, 2019 and is free with General Admission.
Other holiday-themed MPM events can also be found on their website.
4. CELEBRATE THE NEW YEAR
General Admission tickets include free structure parking, free coat check, party favors, and champagne toast at Midnight. Highlighted by multiple DJs spinning the hottest beats, the casino’s Event Center will be full of lights, energy and non-stop music until 3 a.m. Featured DJs include DJ Goose (Milwaukee), DJ King James (Milwaukee), DJ Cross (Chicago), and Bobby De Maria (Chicago).
The room will feature a massive super bar, a 2,500 square-foot dance floor, LED projection screens and several blackjack tables for our lucky guests to ring in the new year.
