For 11 days every summer, Henry Maier Festival Park is the place to be for all music fans. Celebrating its 51st year, Summerfest will take over the beautiful Milwaukee lakefront. With over 800 acts playing on 11 stages, you’ll find alternative, rock, country, R&B, pop, reggae headliners and more, from national headliners to indie artists. The 23,000-seat American Family Insurance Amphitheater hosts some of the biggest tours in music.

As if more music than any one person can listen to wasn’t enough, that’s not all Summerfest has to offer. A variety of the area’s restaurants are on-site offering tasty treats to keep you fueled up and ready to rock, and you can shop for everything from music-themed jewelry to puppets at unique vendors at four shopping marketplaces. The Northwestern Mutual Children’s Theater & PlayZone will keep kids enraptured all day, with performances by magicians, jugglers, dance groups, puppets and more. Spend the day people-watching at the lakefront, shopping or enjoying local and emerging artists on the grounds stages – the headliners start at 8 and 10PM.

There’s a reason that Summerfest is a Milwaukee tradition and the highlight of the summer for many attendees, both locals and visitors – it’s a festival experience like no other!
