OK, so the park ITSELF is not the review here but the Party that it hosts IS! SUMMERFEST! It is the worlds largest music festival & is held each summer (hence the name) at the end of June/beginning of July. Hundreds of bands, lots of food & drink to be had. Granted the food & drink are not free &... More

I love coming to this park for Irish Fest. The music, the dog show, the tug of war and other Irish games are truly unique. A lot of alcohol is imbibed, but I've never seen anyone drunk! The best part about this park is the grass, tables and benches along the water. When you've had enough of the crowds and... More

Not sure when or how Milwaukee became the festival capitol of the world, but it sure seems like now. The home to Summerfest - Henry Maier Festival Park is an outstanding place for parts of spring, summer and early fall entertainment. It needs a couple of enclosed areas and sky walks, so the party can last all year around. Great... More

I know there is a festival here every weekend all summer but there could be some work done on the bathrooms in the off season, they could be re plumbed, we had water dripping on us in one stall it came from the ceiling, it was gross. Of course this is not a reflection of the amazing shows that grace... More

Who doesn't love going to festivals at this perfect park. The views are stunning, the sound quality unparalleled, and the atmosphere, even better. The only thing I would say is that the signage for the bathrooms be better marked. Other than that, you can't go wrong here.
