Democratic National Convention and Wauwatosa
Register your venue as an event space and learn about short term rentals of homes
In July 2020, Milwaukee will be the home base for the Democratic National Convention. With Wauwatosa being so close to Milwaukee, our businesses and residents may be hosting events or groups during that time.
Register your venue as an event space
The Milwaukee Host Committee estimates there could be 2,000 events lead up to and during the Democratic National Convention. Go to milwaukee2020.com to register your venue as an event space.
Rent your home on Airbnb or other short term rental sites
We anticipate that Wauwatosa hotels will be booked during the Democratic National Convention, and some residents may want to rent their homes as well. Home owners may rent a room of their house or their entire house for short periods of time. Similar to hotels, people who rent from homeowners owe a room tax.
The room tax is 7% of gross receipts of the renting of a sleeping room at a hotel, motel, inn and residential dwelling lodging, and other short-term lodging rentals such as Airbnb, Home Away, and VRBO. Most homeowners simply include the room tax in the listing, so the lodger is aware of the tax.
