Summerfest kicks off in Milwaukee today and is sure to be a big hit this summer. This year marks the 45th Summerfest and there is something to please everyone. This 11-day music festival attracts some 700 bands and music fans from across the globe.
Nestled alongside downtown Milwaukee along Lake Michigan, the Summerfest grounds provide scenic views of Milwaukee’s architecture and lakefront. Visitors are free to stroll the grounds and enjoy the Wisconsin summer weather, which could range from warm temperatures with cool breezes to muggy evenings to severe storms. Wisconsin weather can vary a lot, so make sure to check the forecast before heading to see your favorite band.
Driving to the Summerfest grounds from Central Wisconsin can be a long drive, especially after a long day and/or night of enjoying music. Parking at Summerfest can also be stressful, as there is limited space and lots of people around. Before heading to Summerfest, make sure your vehicle is protected by a reliable Wisconsin auto insurance policy. Accidents can and do happen, so it is better to be protected than to end up in a bad situation.
If you are uncomfortable with driving in Milwaukee, there are plenty of shuttle services to the Summerfest grounds. There are also shuttle services within Milwaukee, so you can park away from the crowds and leave your car in a safer location. You can learn more about these shuttle services here.
Enjoying music in an outdoor setting is almost a requirement in Wisconsin. With so many music festivals and bands to choose from, there is something for everyone. Have fun but remember to stay safe!
