Black Cat Alley is an open-air art gallery located in an East Side alley of Milwaukee. The unique street art includes murals from artists across the country. Black Cat Alley hosted an all-day DJ and dancing party during the Summer Soulstice Music Festival.
The East Side's Executive Director, David Smulyan, commented on the event saying, "Black Cat Alley is such a cool space. Festival goers had such a fun time during Summer Soulstice and we wanted to recreate the atmosphere. We are excited to host this Halloween event that has activities for all ages. Going into 2023 we are planning to activate the Alley on a regular basis, for all sorts of musical and art events as well as a variety of special occasion events."
