You're invited to relax and enjoy the cafes of Downtown Green Bay. A punch card will guide you, a trolley will deliver you and samples await you at every stop.
Participating Cafés ~ More to come!
After an outstanding turnout last year, the 2nd Annual Café Crawl invites you to the cafés of the Downtown, Broadway and Olde Main Street Districts. There will be food and/or drink samples at each, and a complimentary trolley to take from stop to stop.
There is no cost, but to assist in planning, we ask that you pre-register. You will then be entered in a drawing for café-inspired prizes donated by participating businesses.
Day-of-Event participants are also welcome.
An event punch card will be available at each stop. As you head home, turn in your punch card to be entered in a prize drawing!
Parking is available at any of the participating businesses, city streets, and parking ramps, and are all free on weekends. Start the crawl at any of the stops!

The Steve Miller Band will begin their concert at 7:30pm. Seating is general admission, and attendees are also welcome to bring lawn chairs.
