"As we approached a September Summerfest, we knew it would be an experiment. That said, it was the only viable option to accommodate artists and fans within this fluid environment," said Don Smiley, President and CEO of Milwaukee World Festival, Inc. "Our team pulled it off and provided an economic boost to the local economy and gave patrons live music on the lakefront. We want to thank all our attendees, vendors, and sponsors for their support - we can’t wait to see them again next year."
