“Go to every festival!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

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 it!

“Annual visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

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.

“Great park with great entertainment!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

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 Marcus, even on the tiniest stage, still some great music going on, people dancing in the street. Fair food and other local vendors as well as beer and sweets for sale. Plenty to enjoy. Take a sky ride for a real treat. And a moonlit walk by Lake Michigan never hurts!

“Crowds- Very Large Crowds”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

I was present during most of the recent festivals, Italian, German, Irish, Mexican, Harley 110th. If you go be prepared for average, overpriced food and huge crowds and some times. I was them cook the food to sort of be prepared then warmed up as the burgers or ribs were ordered. Fun for a little while but I had to give up due to the loud bands (who says you have to be loud to be good) and swarms of people

“What a place!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

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.
