If you’re looking for a solar eclipse party in Milwaukee, look no further. Join other eclipse enthusiasts at the Solar Eclipse Celebration on August 21 at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee campus. 

The party will run from 12:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., with live music by the band The Belle Weather kicking off at 12:15 until 1:00, then resuming from 1:30 to 2:15. Eclipse viewing glasses will be available for purchase so you can be prepared for the 86% maximum visibility at 1:18 p.m.

Food and drinks will be available from Meat on the Street and Chillwaukee along with arts and crafts activities.

Should weather not cooperate, there is a back up plan to watch a live video feed of the eclipse from inside the planetarium. The event is sponsored by the UWM Manfred Olson Planetarium and is free and open to the public.
