Milwaukee Lakefront Fireworks
JULY 3 @ 9:00 PM
Veterans Park | 1010 N Lincoln Memorial Dr. – Milwaukee, WI
(Milwaukee, WI): After a two-year hiatus, Milwaukee’s July 3 firework display, which attracts over 100,000 people to Milwaukee’s lakefront each year, is expected to return in 2022. The show will start around 9:30 p.m., with fireworks launched from barges on Lake Michigan.
The July 3rd display, now sponsored by American Family Insurance, has been a Milwaukee mainstay for over 50 years, with thousands of people taking the opportunity to enjoy a full day of outdoor picnicking and festivities in Veterans Park before the display.
Parking operations at the lakefront will begin at 6 a.m. on July 3. All lots can be accessed from Lincoln Memorial Drive and are first-come, first-served. There are no in-out privileges once a vehicle enters the grounds. All vehicles are asked to leave the grounds after the fireworks display has concluded. Absolutely NO overnight parking is allowed–the 2nd or the 3rd.
Car with trailer: $50
RV with trailer: $100
“Summer in Milwaukee revolves around the park system as so many of the activities that people enjoy in the summer take place in a park.” Says Guy Smith, Milwaukee County Parks Executive Director. “While we still face a lot of challenges with staffing and funding, we’re optimistic that with partners like American Family Insurance, that this year summer may be a little more ‘back to usual’.”
