Summerfest Parking Tips


Milwaukee opens up the summer season once again with The World’s Largest Music Festival – Summerfest! This festival spans across 11 stages over 11 days and features over 800 acts. This year’s line-up is seemingly flawless, with acts such as The Avett Brothers, Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros,  Manchester Orchestra, Santigold, and Ed Sheeran demand thousands of concert goers attention.

The Big Gig attracts around 900,000 people a year – with individuals flocking into the park to sing along to their favorite bands, and listen to bands they’ve never heard of. With so many people traveling to and from the festival grounds, parking can put a damper on your festival spirit.

To make sure you have a stress-free parking experience, SpotHero has partnered with Summerfest to bring you discounted parking. You can avoid being stuck in both pre and post concert traffic by reserving your parking ahead of time – and shuttling to the fest! Not only will you be saving yourself time,so you can catch the acts you want, but you’ll be saving a significant amount of money by parking just outside of the festival grounds.

Summerfest Official grounds parking is about $20-35.  As their official parking partner we’re happy to bring you discounted parking that won’t break the bank.

SpotHero currently has Summerfest parking for as low as $5 a day!  Book ahead & secure your spot now.

All you have to do is reserve through SpotHero, and you can catch the MCTS Route 7 shuttle on Wisconsin Avenue and ride it to Henry Maier Festival Grounds. Bus stops that will take parkers to Summerfest will be clearly labeled with the Summerfest Smile logo.
