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

We came from La Crosse WI to enjoy German Fest. I love this venue and wish we had something like it. What a great way to use space on the water front. Many stages with live music, places for vendors, and tones of places to eat or get a beverage. And tons of restrooms!!!!! And very clean.

Excellent venue for several ethnic festivals and summerfest we have always found it clean, well supervised and to have modern, maintained, and working facilities. Plenty of room for both outdoor and covered activities and events
