Summerfest is the culmination of the music/food/fun time. Plus the grounds is also host to a different ethnic festival every weekend throughout the summer, such as Fiesta Mexicana, Irish Fest, African World Festival, Germanfest & many more.

Everyone needs to experience Summerfest at Maier Festival park once in their lives. I have been to Ravinia, New Orleans Jazz Festival and music festivals in California. None can compete with this wonderful park with over 19 music stages and whatever food you desire. Located along Lake Michigan with easy access from anywhere. Great people watching and comfortable.

Summerfest is THE music festival. Eleven days. Eight hundred bands. Around 800000 visitors. Nothing compares. I love being able to see the hottest new up and coming bands, and great classic bands all in the same day for less than $20. Doesn't get better than that.

This is a great park for many events. It has several concert stages with a very beautiful open air stage that looked out on Lake Michigan behind the band. Of course this park is nothing without the festivals that seemed to be every week of the summer. We attended several days of Summerfest, German Fest, Irish Fest and the Frommes... More

I like the way they are always adding and updating the festival grounds. I also appreciate the different types of music they have represented. Lots of different food. They do a good job at keeping things clean.

Love the music and people watching. Great to get dropped off and take the free bus back to park and ride. Lots of choices from local restaurants and drinks. Always a highlight. Great deal for seniors to get in at a discount too.

I stopped counting the number of Irish Fests I've been to and it is an arduous journey from Atlantic City. This year's lineup was best ever.. I felt I had my entire trip costs justified after the Thursday night programs. So Friday, Saturday snd Sunday were bonus. The Sunday liturgy inspires both spiritualy and logistically. And the weather was best... More
