Hip-Hop Week MKE

Milwaukee made history as the first city in America to create an official ‘Hip-Hop Week’ focusing on the power of Hip-Hop to help positively transform urban communities.

The annual weeklong city-wide event celebrating the culture of Hip-Hop features performances, seminars, and an array of other events focused on civic engagement, voter registration, wellness and mental health, financial literacy, and exploring pathways to success.

Join us for Hip-Hop Week MKE 2023 as we celebrate Hip-Hop’s 50th anniversary: August 21 - 27, 2023
