The Big Gig is in full swing and there’s plenty of time to see acts big and small at the music and entertainment stages, along with all the other festivities. In its near-50 year history, the festival has swelled to a size that listing all the artists take pages, but it is possible to offer up a few tips on getting through the doors. Some of the top admissions promotions remain available to redeem: Kohl’s Family Day (July 3) offers free admission for the first 2,500 patrons who donate three non-perishable food items. Summerfest Military Appreciation Day (July 7) offers free admission for active military, veterans and their families. And, on two days (Children’s Fest Day, July 5, and Fan Appreciation Day, July 10) admission is free for all patrons between noon and 3 p.m.
Through July 10 at the Summerfest Grounds, Milwaukee. $20, $13 weekdays, $8 seniors/children 3 to 10. summerfest.com
