Meet the 2017 VIP Weekend Experience winner

alyssa_justus_pridefest_milwaukeeCongratulations to Alyssa Justus, our PrideFest Milwaukee 2017 guest of honor!

“PrideFest is all about celebrating people of different gender and sexual identities,” said Alyssa.  “I look forward to this festival every year, because it’s my chance to be around people like me, and a place I can be myself.”

“For the six years that I’ve been going, everyone has always been so kind and accepting.  I think this community needs more of that, since the world can be so hateful and cruel.   PrideFest weekend is all about love, kindness, and acceptance.”


Alyssa will receive:

  • VIP weekend passes (2) to PrideFest 2017, including free admission all weekend and unlimited access to the NEW VIP areas at the Miller Lite Mainstage, which offers complimentary refreshments and unparalleled views of performances;
  • 3 nights at the Doubletree Milwaukee Downtown, our official hotel for PrideFest 2017, including welcome cocktails, daily breakfast early Friday check-in and Monday morning check-out;
  • Backstage Meet & Greet photo sessions with participating headliner acts;
  • PrideFest Welcome Package, including PrideFest swag and special extras!

Alyssa’s name was drawn from over 17,000 contest entries.

  1. I have always loved coming to pridefest! It has been traditional for me for the past 4 years. I have friends all over the world who are LGBTQ, and I wouldn’t trade them for the world. Being bi myself it is a place to meet new friends and be myself, maybe even find love like I know people have! I love everything about pridefest!
