Beautiful, clean and plenty of room to walk around. Great venue. Loved the customer service of all the paid and volunteer employees. Would visit any event in a heartbeat if I only lived in Wisconsin.

Come here annually for Germanfest. Parking is easy and plentiful. Grounds are beautiful with nice view of lakefront. Many vendors for food during the ethnic festivals. Many stages of entertainment as well.

An excellent venue for Germanfest beats Zinzinnati Oktoberfest and Wurstfeat in New Braunfels Tx by a mile! It was very clean, family friendly and an overall besetting. With the historic third ward and Lake Michigan within walking distance.

The festival park is a huge venue for events like the Italian Festa we attended. It is well laid out with a beautiful setting near the river.

I would suggest I94 to I794 toward the lake--it will take you right there--just follow the signs. :) Have fun!
