Gathering on the Green Information:

Since 1994, Gathering on the Green has become Southeastern Wisconsin's premier summer spot to enjoy the performing arts. Set in scenic Mequon Rotary Park, the multiple day festival offers the opportunity to enjoy the best of Milwaukee's performing arts, while gazing under the summer stars. Gathering on the Green's vision is to introduce new audiences, families and children to the performing arts. We are now excited to be offering the addition of the Gathering On The Green 5k Run/Walk & Youth Run to the fun and festivities of a great family weekend of events.
