Food & Beverage Vendors

Summerfest typically looks for applicants that currently own and operate a restaurant in the Milwaukee area. In selecting a vendor for our program, we also look for diversity of product and festival experience of applicant.

We are no longer accepting new food & beverage vendor inquiries for the 2014 season.  Please check back with us in October for more information regarding opportunities for Summerfest 2015.  If you have previously inquired and received an application for Summerfest 2014, there is still time to submit your information.
