Summerfest dates back to 1968 and has since become a major venue for the music industry’s hottest stars, emerging talent and local favorites, creating unforgettable live music experiences in a world-class festival setting. Running along Milwaukee’s lakefront nestled within downtown, the Historic Third Ward, Discovery World, I-794, and Lake Michigan, Summerfest offers not only music but over 45 food and beverage vendors, four marketplaces offering crafts and wares from all over the world, interactive exhibits, and just cool general fun.

Many of the food and beverage vendors are classic and popular restaurants and bars from around the Milwaukee area, and selections range widely from ethnic food options to a wide variety of craft and classic beers. Several stands also have a full bar with wine and spirits.

During the day, Summerfest is designed to be very family-friendly.

Summerfest Tickets

Single Day General Admission Tickets run $26 per day, you can print them at home or put them on your mobile. These tickets are good for the entire grounds and any show with the exception of the American Family Insurance Amphitheater shows. Seniors 62 and over and Children 3-10 can get discount tickets at the gate. Children 2 and under are admitted free.

Multi-Day Ticket options include:

  • A US Cellular Power Pass, which runs $130 and gets you in ALL 9 DAYS of the festival, with the exception of the American Family Insurance Amphitheater shows. Right now, you can get this for $100 through April 5th!

  • A US Cellular 3-Day Pass, which for $62 gets you in to 3 of 9 days of Summerfest, you choose which three.

Parking

Parking lots are available just to the west of the grounds and throughout downtown Milwaukee and the Historic Third Ward. The Milwaukee County Transit System also offers “freeway flyer” express buses to and from the grounds from numerous Park & Ride lots in the metro area. The Summerfest Grounds can be accessed directly via I-794, U.S. 18, and Highway 32. I-43/94 and Highways 38, 59, and 145 also bring you within a mile of it – which is how far away some people park! Either way, it’s one of the greatest music festivals on the planet and a definite State Trunk Tour recommendation.
