2014 Calendar of events, fairs, festivals, concerts, things to do

By Amy Czerniec and Mark Czerniec

Here’s our calendar of events and things to do — July 4th fireworks displays, concerts, music festivals, food festivals, parades, county fairs, bike races, art fairs, church festivals, and so on — around Racine and Kenosha, plus the greater Milwaukee-Chicago area, and elsewhere. It is by no means a complete list, so be sure to check out the other events calendars.
