The festival, known as one of Milwaukee's most popular, diverse and longest running, was set to take place on June 14. This would have been the 44th year.
The Riverwest Beer Run is typically the kickoff of the day-long street festival.
"With too many still unknowns about the COVID-19 virus, the Festival committee made the decision that it's best to cancel this year's festival than to risk the health and safety of its attendees, artisans, staff and organizers," said the committee in a press release.
This the first time the Locust Street Festival of Music & Art has been canceled, but mark your calendars for June 13, 2021 for its return.
