Port Milwaukee traditionally hosts cruise vessels at the Pier Wisconsin cruise dock. However, when not in use, it is made available for private event rental, including fireworks displays.
Private events and fireworks displays can be scheduled throughout the year at Port Milwaukee-operated facilities, namely the Pier Wisconsin Cruise Dock at Discovery World. Port Milwaukee’s Pier Wisconsin Rental Policy formally establishes the parameters, logistics, and costs associated with private rental of this pier.
Renter(s) acknowledge that holding an outdoor event adjacent to a body of water possesses an inherent risk of danger to those participating in the event. All possible safety precautions will be exercised by Renter(s).
In case any action in court or proceeding before an administrative agency is brought against the City or any of its officers, agents, or employees for the failure or neglect of the Renter in whole or in part to perform any of the covenants, acts, matters, or things by this Contract undertaken, or for injury or damage caused by the alleged negligence of the Renter, its officers, agents, or employees, the Renter shall indemnify and same harmless the City and its officers, agents, and employees from all losses, damages, costs, expenses, judgments, or decrees arising out of such action.
The City shall tender the defense of any claim or action at law or in equity to the Renter or Renter’s insurer, and upon such tender it shall be the duty of the Renter or the Renter’s insurer to defend such claim or action without cost or expense to the City or its officers, agents, or employees.
The Renter shall be solely responsible for the conduct and performance of the services required under the terms and conditions of this contract and for the results therefrom.
