COME TO MILWAUKEE “THE CITY OF FESTIVALS”

84th Annual Convention Hosted by the Milwaukee Club

July 23-26, 2020

Lock in your plans now for the MFASLC’s 84th Annual Convention! Get ready for an unpredictable weekend in Milwaukee and discover why Travel + Leisure named it one of the “Best Places to Travel in 2020.”

This year’s convention will be in the heart of downtown Milwaukee, with activities, food, dancing and fun all part of the weekend’s packed agenda! Vibrant, fun, and forward-thinking, Milwaukee is a welcoming destination for visitors from all over the world, and the perfect place to celebrate our Lebanese heritage together.

All-access pass and individual ticket sales end on July 15, 2020.

You can also take advantage of our special group rate at the remodeled Hyatt Regency Milwaukee. You’ll get downtown’s top attractions at your door. Use the skywalk to access the Wisconsin Center, Federal Plaza, and The Shops of Grand Avenue. Step outside to explore the Riverwalk, which features a statue of Fonzie from Happy Days; say hi to Gertie the Duck (and her statue), a Milwaukee icon and national symbol of hope; gaze at the bridges and watch them move! Fiserv Forum, the Entertainment District, and more are all just a short walk away.
