When not engaged in physical recreation, locals frequent other city-based attractions such as the many events held throughout the year, including the Taste of Wisconsin, HarborPark Jazz & Blues Fest and the Renaissance Faire. The Taste of Wisconsin is held in July and hosts roughly 30,000 guests each year, all whom enjoy a weekend of the best food and beverage Wisconsin has to offer.
