Summerfest to give free tickets to festival at pair of upcoming vaccination clinics

Summerfest changes carry-in rules because of extreme heat

MILWAUKEE — Summerfest and the Milwaukee Health Department are teaming up to host a pair of drive-thru vaccination clinics, and everyone who gets a shot will also get a free ticket to Summerfest.

Tickets are valid for any day of the festival.

The clinics are scheduled to run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 5 and 6 in the Henry Maier Festival Parking lots located at the Summerfest grounds. Those interested should enter from the south via Erie Street or north via Lincoln Memorial Drive then follow signage toward the South Gate.

Health officials said they’re providing both the Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. Anyone 12 and older is eligible to get the two-dose Pfizer vaccine, and anyone 18 and older is eligible for the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

Anyone who returns for their second dose of Pfizer’s vaccine during a pair of follow-up clinic on June 26 and 27 will be entered into a drawing to win a Summerfest 2021 prize package which includes a UScellular™ Power Pass and festival merchandise.


More information and a map of the drive-thru clinic route is available on the festival’s website.
