Fodor's Review

The self-styled "World's Largest Music Festival" headlines the season of fests at Henry Maier Festival Park. The festival showcases more than 700 national, regional, and local acts on 10 stages, and also includes a sports area, a kids' play area, face-painting, arts, ethnic foods, and vendors. The event begins on the last Thursday in June and runs 10 days. Visit July 3 for a perfect view of the huge U.S. Bank fireworks display.

Festival City's best festival

Probably more than anything but family, Summerfest is what brought me back to Milwaukee after a short absence. There is literally something for everyone including best days and times of days to go. This isn't just the "World's Largest Music Festival" it is one of its best and what helps make Milwaukee the best Summer city in America
