There’s some competition for “the most wonderful time of the year.” Milwaukee Day is coming up

There’s some competition for “the most wonderful time of the year.” Milwaukee Day is coming up once again.

And this year, not only is it a day to celebrate our beloved city — it’s also the Brewers’ home opener. 

Since 2010, “Milwaukee Day” has been celebrated on April 14 (4/14) since it has the same digits as Milwaukee’s area code, 414. 

From live music and art to $4.14 beers and brewery tours, here’s a guide of ways to spend it in 2022. 

Brewers home opener 

Even the Brew Crew is getting into the 414 Day spirit. The game time of their home opener against the St. Louis Cardinals at American Family Field is 4:14 p.m.

“I think it’s the first time in the history of the team that we’ve ever started a game at that time,” Brewers President Rick Schlesinger said in a previous Milwaukee Journal Sentinel report. “It’s somewhat serendipitous that our home opener is 414 day, which obviously has a lot of real meaning to the people of Milwaukee. So, we’re excited to have opening day, we’re excited that it’s on 414.”

And if you plan on catching the game from the comfort of your couch or your favorite watering hole, it’ll be broadcast on Bally Sports Wisconsin, which is available on Spectrum and DirecTV. 

Milwaukee Brewers left fielder Christian Yelich gets ready for a spring training game against the Los Angeles Angels at American Family Fields of Phoenix in March. The Brewers' home opener is Thursday, April 14.

MKExpanded 414 Day Festival 

Mocha Harris, the new organizer of the official Milwaukee Day group, is presenting the MKExpanded 414 Day Festival. This year, Harris replaced Milwaukee Day co-founders Andy Silverman and Brent Gohde as the holiday’s primary planner, according to a news release. 

Harris and No Studios are collaborating for a Q&A on barbering and entrepreneurship with Anthony CRE$PO and a performance from Milwaukee native and Roc Nation signee Huey V on April 14 at No Studios, 1037 W. McKinley Ave. The event is free and starts at 7 p.m. To register, visit
