From noon –3 p.m. on Sunday, July 7, 2019, Summerfest will distribute nearly $700,000 worth of FREE tickets, when 30,000 general admission tickets to Summerfest 2020 are handed out (while supplies last) at the North, South and Mid Gate entrances.  The 2020 admission ticket that fans receive will also include the opportunity to win prizes from various Summerfest sponsors – it’s the BIG WIN!

“In partnership with our sponsors, we want to thank the community for their enduring support and celebrate the impact of this festival through Meijer Fan Appreciation Day, FREE Summerfest 2020 tickets, and the BIG WIN giveaway.  It is a great way to bring our community together, which is one of Summerfest’s most important contributions to Milwaukee,” said Don Smiley President and CEO of Milwaukee World Festival, Inc.

This year, Milwaukee World Festival, Inc. will have distributed over $1.2 million dollars in FREE tickets to Summerfest throughout the Greater Milwaukee area, carrying on the tradition of giving back to the community.  In addition, Milwaukee World Festival, Inc. continues to play an important role in the community at large, hiring over 2,200 seasonal employees, 42% of which are ages 22 or younger.

“Each year, Summerfest has a $186 million dollar impact on the regional community”, continued Don Smiley.  “In addition to the thousands of employment opportunities, we support music education, drive tourism, and promote the City of Milwaukee to a national audience.  All of this is made possible by our partners and the fans that choose to come to Summerfest, over our 11-day run.  That’s what the BIG WIN is all about.”

To participate in the BIG WIN, fans must turn in the perforated entry stub from the Summerfest 2020 ticket at the Mid Gate Information booth no later than 3:30 p.m. on July 7, 2019.  The prize drawing will take place at 4:00 p.m. at the Miller Lite Oasis.  Patrons must bring the 2020 ticket to the drawing.  If the entry number on the ticket matches the number that is announced and displayed on the screen, they will be declared a Summerfest BIG WINner.
