If you’re not from Wisconsin, or have never visited our great state, you probably don’t realize how great our summers can be. Not only is the weather incredibly pleasant, there are many, many, outdoor activities to do in the warm (but not too warm) weather. But Milwaukee first and foremost known for one thing in the summer time: Festivals.
Milwaukee is home to dozens of summer festivals, and they span the entire summer. No matter when you visit, chances are there is something going on. In short, Milwaukee festivals define our city during the summer time.
The biggest and most famous of the festivals is Summerfest. Now nearly 50 years old, Summerfest is the world’s largest music festival and it spans 11 days in late June and early July. Summerfest offers hundreds and hundreds of musical acts, including some of the hottest names in country, pop, rap, and rock. If music isn’t your cup of tea, Summerfest also features rides, exhibits, competitions, comedy, and various other non-music entertainment acts. Check out their website to see the full lineup in this nearly-two-week-long party.
After Summerfest, Milwaukee is famous for its many festivals celebrating the city’s rich and diverse cultural heritage. From German fest to Bastille Days to Mexican Fiesta, Milwaukee has a festival celebrating just about every aspect of its cultural makeup.

And finally, Milwaukee has long been famous for its beer brewing industry—both macro and micro. But many don’t realize that Milwaukee is a fast-rising star in the national food scene. Our summer festivals showcase some of the best we have to offer in food and beverage, and anyone who considers him or herself a serious foodie should seriously consider putting a few dates in Milwaukee on the summer travel calendar.
So come visit us in Milwaukee and take advantage of the wonderful summer season. We’d love to have you stay with us at Baymont Inn & Suites in Mequon.
