Everybody needs an idea of what to do and places to go in Milwaukee. Well here are some of the best events and places to go during the summer.
1. Summerfest (June 28- July 2 + July 4- July 9)
12:00pm to 12:00am Sunday – Saturday
The first event that should be on everyone’s calendar is Summerfest. Summerfest is the largest music festival in the entire country that goes for almost two weeks. This year marks the 50th Anniversary so they’re going all out with their music line ups this year. Some notable superstars who are going to be performing are The Chainsmokers, Luke Bryan, Future, Big Sean and Migos. Summerfest has a little bit of everything when it comes to music so you’re bound to have a good time. Tickets are a bit on the expensive side this year at $20 for General Admissions tickets, but Weekday admission tickets are a bit more generous at $13. The only difference is Weekday tickets only work from noon - 4:00 pm, Tuesday through Friday for Summerfest. They also have various events for free admission during the festival. You can see those events from the link above. My personal take is that if there is ever a year to go to Summerfest, this is the year.
2. State Fair (August 3-13)
$6 Ticket Sale:
8 am – 11 pm Sunday – Thursday
8 am – 12 am Friday & Saturday
8 am – 10 pm Final Sunday
The second event that should be on everyone’s calendar is Wisconsin State Fair. The State fair is the place to go if you want to eat a variety of foods. The food item that’s most well-known are Cream Puffs. I’m personally not a fan, but to some it’s the best food in the food. The admission is very affordable at $12, plus State Fair has a sale going on for the tickets. Tickets are currently $6 until June 30th. So if you plan on going, now is the time to cop tickets.
3. Bradford Beach
The number one spot to go to for outdoor fun in Milwaukee would have to be Bradford Beach. You can grill out, play volleyball, walk on the shore line and just have fun in the sun. Without a doubt if you want to experience the outdoors, Bradford Beach is the spot.
If you want to have an enjoyable summer, these events will be the starting point. Hope y’all enjoy.
