Henry Maier Festival Park reviews
I've been to several festivals here! One of my favorite parks in the city. I try to visit whenever I'm in town visiting family. more »

We attended a concert here outside of the Summerfest window. It was easy to park, easy to find, easy to get in, and the show was great! It loses a star because of a few minor things: There weren't enough food vendors to get everyone fed before the weekday evening show. Long lines dampened the mood. Separate beer stations helped, but even these were backed up before the concert and during breaks. The aluminum bench seats had the seat number engraved on them. This was nearly impossible to read in the best of light. Add dusk settling in and everyone needed a light to see where to sit. I'm not sure how I feel regarding the card-only payment policy. Cash is legal tender and should be accepted, although I can see - from a vendor standpoint - where handling everything electronically is easier administratively. Many more positives than negatives will make me jump at the opportunity to attend another event.
I enjoyed seeing everyone dressed up in their costumes. The spanferkel dinner was very good. Nice large portions of pork. I couldn't finish it! It would be helpful if there were more picnic tables next to the lake.
