Riverworks Week 2018 Riverworks Week 2018

Welcome to Riverworks: Milwaukee’s Creative District! We hope you can join in the fun for some or all of the week’s offerings. Whether it’s a cup of coffee in the morning, a Friday night block party, or an original bike tour through one of Wisconsin’s oldest planned industrial parks - there will be something going on that you won’t want to miss.

We want You!
We're hosting two great contests that need your participation

Riverworks Week 2018 // The Dolphin Pool

The Dolphin Pool

Riverworks is now accepting applications for contestants to compete in the 4th Annual Dolphin Pool! Milwaukee’s original, premier forum for start-ups invites entrepreneurs to pitch their business concept in front of a live crowd, and a panel of expert judges. Think Shark Tank, only kinder and gentler. An electric evening of support and opportunity awaits the six chosen finalists.

Deadline to Apply:

Riverworks Week 2018 // The Inventors Circus

The Inventors Circus

Friday, September 21
5:00pm Live! at the Riverworks City Center

Rally your family, friends, and colleagues together to test your creative problem solving skills. Using the inspired approach originated by cartoonist Rube Goldberg, teams will work to beat the clock while inventing and building a ridiculous, wildly over complicated “machine”.

Duct tape and string + wild imagination + gravity = a fantastically fun bonding adventure!
