My favorite place in Milwaukee. I try to describe Summerfest to my friends around the country and they just can't believe it. I also love Irish Fest, German Fest, Festa Italiana, Polish Fest... they are all so much fun and a very good value compared to festivals in other parts of the country. You have to experience it to believe... More

This is the place to go for Summerfest. We come here every year to spend a few days and enjoy the bands. German Fest is the end of July and highly recommended.

I have been to Henry Maier Festival Park several times, for Summerfest and other concerts and events. Very large grounds which accommodate many people very easily. Easy to get there, plenty of parking and most at reasonable rates. Plenty of restroom facilities available. Great sound at the Marcus Amphitheater and always some really great acts. Always impressed. Outside of the... More

Great structure for shows and Festivals, a lot of concert stages, bars, restaurants, restrooms and rest areas. I really enjoyed the H-D 110th Anniversary in the Henry Maier Festival Park.

The festival grounds is home to many festivals throughout the summer. It is always nice to go and experience the grounds, food and activities for any or all of the festivals. A great venue.

Not even worth one star. I recently went to the Henry Maier Festival Park for the Harley Davidson 110th Anniversary. I ordered a glass of wine at the booth in front of the Briggs and Stratton stage while a band was playing. I had to repeat my order four times because the elderly man who took my order could not...

The Summerfest grounds were very clean and the bands were great. The vendor area just outside the Summerfest grounds were pretty clean but could have used a few more trash cans. The vendors were extremely helpful and polite.

Beaucoup music venues and choices, great "fair" food and lots of cold beverage vendors. What better way to spend a day or two of your vacation?
