Summerfest is back for its 55th Anniversary and we're excited to partner with them once again to get you in free of charge Friday, June 30th thanks to Show Your College Pride day with OnMilwaukee, CW18 and My24 Milwaukee!
The Big Gig returns to Milwaukee's Lakefront for three weekends of music, food and fun beginning Thursday, June 22nd! The only thing better than the summer tradition is getting into the World's Largest Music Festival for FREE! On Friday, June 30th all patrons who arrive between 12:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. wearing a shirt or hat representing a participating college or university, or present their High School ID, will receive one (1) free admission ticket. Tickets are only valid for the day and time of the promotion. Stop by the Mid Gate Promotions Booth to receive your ticket, then head over to your school’s booth to say hello and show your support!
Search those drawers and closets to break out your spirit gear representing one of these six participating institutions*:
Milwaukee Area Technical College
University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
University of Wisconsin-Whitewater
*For those wondering, all participating schools made arrangements with the team at Summerfest to do so and will have booths on site for the event. Sorry if your school isn't partaking - nothing personal.
As an added bonus, all High School students who complete their FAFSA by July 6 will receive one (1) free General Admission Summerfest Ticket, brought to you by Milwaukee Education Partnership.
Free Admission tickets for Show Your College Pride Day with OnMilwaukee, CW18 and My24 will allow the holder access to the Summerfest grounds and festival stages on Friday, June 30th only. Summerfest 2023 is taking place over three consecutive weekends, June 22-24, June 29-July 1 & July 6-8 from Noon-Midnight on Milwaukee's Lakefront.
