Festival Season in Milwaukee

Festival Season in Milwaukee

Summerfest a two week music festival, celebrating its 50th year, opened on June 28th at the Henry W. Maier Festival Grounds. The outdoor music festival is the world’s largest and attracts just under one million music lovers from around the country and the world. Every summer the large influx of visitors creates a crucial need for budget-conscious and luxury accommodations alike.

This year the demand for luxury hotels like the Kimpton Journeyman has greatly increased. The 150 room boutique hotel is just a short walk from the festival grounds and allows guests to leave their cars behind. Patrick Gaskin, the General Manager of the Kimpton Journeyman was quoted saying “Everyone knows how much of a nightmare and a hassle that [driving] can be when you have 100,000 people a day at the festival.” The popular event also provides an annual economic boost to Milwaukee businesses, contributing close to $200 million of revenue.

As the festivities continue and visitors pour into Milwaukee, FirstPathway Partners is excited to see the Kimpton Journeyman, an EB-5 project, continue to serve the needs of the community.
