Most people are aware that the Democratic National Convention is coming to Milwaukee in July 2020. This is a great event and will bring thousands of people and millions of dollars to the city. The Milwaukee Bucks organization, owner of Fiserv Forum and the adjacent plaza where we held the 2019 Morning Glory Art Fair, were confident that there would be no impact on Morning Glory. What was not taken into consideration was the impact on many other large events in the city, and the need to reschedule them from their traditional times, to accommodate the DNC. Morning Glory finds itself losing our prime show space and being surrounded by potential competing activities.
Our primary concern of WDCC's Morning Glory is the success of our artists. After multiple meetings over the last weeks and discussion of all options, we were not able to develop a strategy that would work to host the Morning Glory Art Fair for this year. Accordingly, and with great reluctance, the Morning Glory Committee and the WDCC Board of Directors have made the difficult decision to not have a show in 2020.
Zapplication will refund artists who have submitted application and booth fees. Artists who were jury exempt for 2020 will be extended that status for 2021.
We are already planning for Morning Glory Art Fair 2021 at the plaza in front of Fiserv Forum for the weekend of August 14-15 and look forward to seeing you all then. In the meantime, we wish you a great season of success with your business and greatly appreciate your continued support.
We were thrilled with the success of our new venue in 2019 and and look forward to continuing in 2021, bringing the fair once again to the plaza in front of Fiserv Forum in downtown Milwaukee.
. Fiserv Forum is the home of the NBA Milwaukee Bucks. The plaza is located at 1111 Vel R. Phillips Ave. in the bustling north end of downtown Milwaukee. The vibrant surrounding area provides the best in Milwaukee dining and entertainment, along with ample parking and easy on/off freeway access from all directions.
