“As we close the 50th edition of Summerfest, we want to thank our fans and the community for their loyalty to the festival by giving away the best prize possible – a lifetime pass to Summerfest.  We would not be looking to the next 50 years if it were not for our incredible fans,” said Don Smiley, Milwaukee World Festival, Inc.
