Peep Diorama Competition

Historic Milwaukee, Inc. invites you to participate in our first ever Peep Diorama Contest, taking place from March 8 until March 31! Based on the popular event by the Washington Post, contestants are asked to build shoe-box size dioramas showcasing Milwaukee’s built environment and rich history, using Peeps to represent characters in the scenes. Entries must be submitted by March 31 and will be judged by Historic Milwaukee Executive Director Stacy Swadish and Historic Milwaukee board members.
