  • We attended a concert here outside of the Summerfest window. It was easy to park, easy to find, easy to get in, and the show was great! It loses a star because of a few minor things: There weren't enough food vendors to get everyone fed before the weekday evening show. Long lines dampened the mood. Separate beer stations helped, but even these were backed up before the concert and during breaks. The aluminum bench seats had the seat number engraved on them. This was nearly impossible to read in the best of light. Add dusk settling in and everyone needed a light to see where to sit. I'm not sure how I feel regarding the card-only payment policy. Cash is legal tender and should be accepted, although I can see - from a vendor standpoint - where handling everything electronically is easier administratively. Many more positives than negatives will make me jump at the opportunity to attend another event.
  • I enjoyed seeing everyone dressed up in their costumes. The spanferkel dinner was very good. Nice large portions of pork. I couldn't finish it! It would be helpful if there were more picnic tables next to the lake.
  • Great place to take in the sites, hear some great musicians, and experience Milwaukee's rich culture. Make sure you wear your walking shoes as there are numerous things to see and do. Enjoy!
  • Is fairly clean and well kept during events. Would suggest going on the sky lift while there. Very pretty view of the water. Also would suggest going during German and Irish Fest.
  • I Love all of the festivals here, but expecially Summerfest. Which is why we were there a few months back. So many things to do, different bands, great food, & AMAZING local shops. Supporting local is the best! The price to get in is decent, they have shuttles to and from the event, and many places to park as well. The music is free, well besides the headliners in the American family insurance stage. Worth going for sure!
