Friday, Oct. 25

Turner Hall

Get prepared, because this year we get TWO Halloweekends. Besides requiring you to throw together double the costumes, Milwaukee is bringing two weekends of costume parties, haunted breweries and festive bar crawls. But out of all the events this dance party/concert/fashion show/costume contest will be the one not to miss on weekend #1. Sponsored by 88nine Radio Milwaukee, this annual party will feature favorite local band The Fatty Acids, a costume contest, a Michael Jackson vs. Prince dance party and free PBR tallboys to the first 100 attendees.



Milwaukee Ballet presents Dracula

Marcus Center for the Performing Arts
This weekend Milwaukee is getting a ballet with some bite. Based on Bram Stoker’s classic, this repeat Halloween production by Milwaukee Ballet is bloodier than any dance production you’re likely to see. The show uses a dark score and even darker plot to create moments of tension, horror and even some satirical commentary. Though vampires are everywhere these days, this show brings the trope back from the dead and gives Dracula new life.


Made in Milwaukee and 88Nine Radio Milwaukee present Milwaukee’s largest and funkiest Halloween party! Music, fashion, art and the Michael Jackson vs Prince dance party!
