New event venue to begin construction this summer at the Harley-Davidson Museum

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) --- The Harley-Davidson Museum and 1903 Events announced Monday, May 10 that construction will begin this summer on a new event space. 

Officials say the 8,200-square-foot event space has an expected completion date of spring 2022. The new space will replace the formal seasonal event space Chrome, and will be located south of The Shop. 

“We’ve all been missing the fun that comes when friends and families gather to celebrate,” said Bill Davidson, Vice President of the Harley-Davidson Museum. “And we know there are a lot of people who are looking forward to coming together in person in the near future. This new event space will give our 1903 Events team the opportunity to deliver unique experiences that can only be found on our campus. This investment represents our growing commitment to the community, to the city of Milwaukee, which Harley-Davidson has called home for 118 years.”

Morton Buildings, Inc. is the design-build company. HGA is providing design consulting support.

“Whether it’s the wedding of your dreams or a meeting to better get to know your clients and colleagues, the Harley-Davidson Museum offers many options to make your event unforgettable,” said Annie Champeau, Director of Sales for 1903 Events. “This new space, with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Menomonee River, five garage doors that open up to gorgeous adjacent green spaces, integrated AV, and more, will soon become Milwaukee’s favorite gathering place.”
