Cirque du Lake Park

10/3/2020 –Thank you to everyone who contributed to the success of the 2020 Cirque du Lake Park fundraiser! Please enjoy Robin Pluer’s concert on YouTube by clicking here. We hope to be back under the tent in 2021!

“Cirque du Lake Park-Live from the Lighthouse” will be held virtually on Saturday, September 26, 2020 at 6:30-8:00 pm. All proceeds are to benefit Milwaukee County’s historic Lake Park.

As much as we’d love to gather under the big top for our big fall fundraiser, Cirque du Lake Park, we’ve decided to make it a live-streamed online event this year. You’ll still be able to party – in your backyard or maybe on your porch or patio – watching from Lake Park Friends Facebook page. This year we’ll be doing Cirque 2020 from the historic North Point Lighthouse, our neighbor in the park. So it will be in the park, even though we can’t all be there together. Singer Robin Pluer will headline and host.

We hope to raise funds through sponsorships and a spectacular online auction.

This year’s fundraising theme is “The Year of the Tree”. And here’s why: Lake Park stands to lose 30% of its trees due to the Emerald Ash borer. Working with Milwaukee County Parks, the Lake Park Friends Nature Committee is crafting a long-term tree plan.

Lake Park Friends, a 501(c)(3) organization, relies on the generosity and support of partners like you to execute our mission to preserve, restore, and enhance Milwaukee’s Lake Park. The educational, cultural, and recreational events we present to the community are direct results of your support.

As a community, we are driven by how much we have achieved in the park and by the incredible, but exciting, challenges we must still address. This annual event is the centerpiece of our effort to protect and to grow what is the crown jewel of our parks system.
