Tomah Chamber & Visitors Center Newsletter September 2018

MONTHLY NEWSLETTER CHAMBER CHATTER September 2018 MUSIC ON MILWAUKEE BEER & SAUSAGE FEST “Tomah Needs Something Like This”…that’s what we’ve been hearing for the last few years: Tomah needs a concert. Tomah needs a festival. Well, after a lot of planning and work, we put one on! Last month, we hosted our first “Music on Milwaukee” where we literally closed off the street and brought in the bands. Greg Hall and the Wrecking Ball opened up the afternoon, followed by Duncan Peterson and we ended the night with the Tim Sigler band. The musical lineup was fantastic and a lot of fun and dancing was had by those in attendance. Keep an eye out for more events that we will be putting on in the future! Thanks to all those who attended and sponsored our first Music on Milwaukee! Who doesn’t like beer or sausage? Come on out to Tomah’s own Beer and Sausage Fest on Saturday, September 8th from 5 until 8 pm, but stay for the after party that ends at midnight! General admission tickets to the event include a meal ticket, beer samples, live music, home brew demonstration, prizes, raffles, drawings and the after party. You can also purchase a VIP ticket that will include early access to the grounds, a limited edition sampling glass, a limited edition pint glass, a limited edition t-shirt, reserved seating and unlimited meal ticket with desert!
