414 Day History

Several years ago a group of friends were discussing the date April 14 when one of them commented that the date (4/14) is the same as Milwaukee’s area code (414). From that casual observation, an especially casual holiday was born. The friends deemed April 14 Milwaukee Day, and proposed that it be used to celebrate the local character that makes the city such a rewarding place to call home. Last year Mayor Tom Barrett agreed that this group of dudes was on to something, and officially proclaimed April 14, 2012 Milwaukee Day.

The wide-ranging holiday’s new primary planner and media contact was born and raised in Milwaukee before briefly moving to Atlanta for college. She returned to the city in 2018 and funneled her passion for music and her business background into a talent buying and booking venture called MKExpanded. With the blessing of Milwaukee Day’s creators, Harris is now looking to take the holiday to the next level.
