WCD FACILITIES HAVE A 100-YEAR HISTORY OF EVENTS

The history of our assembly venues goes back over 100 years, to the opening of the Milwaukee Auditorium, now the Milwaukee Theatre. In that time, under various names, they've hosted an endless variety of concert, theatrical, sporting, political, religious and corporate events, convention assemblies, graduations and much more. Below is an incomplete list of the more-or-less public events that have been held in the Milwaukee Auditorium, U.S. Cellular Arena and Milwaukee Theatre since 1909.

If you know of (and can substantiate) any events not listed below, we'd love to hear from you! Please send a readable fax, photocopy or scan of your ticket, playbill, program, poster, review, ad or other documentation. Do not send original materials; they will not be returned. Send your documentation to ATTENTION: EVENT LIST. You can fax it to 414-908-6010, email a scan to boxoffice@wcd.org, or mail a photocopy to Wisconsin Center District, 400 W. Wisconsin Avenue, Milwaukee, WI 53203.

Dates are U.S. style.  Some "milestone" events are in bold.
