After three record-breaking days of historic celebration, PrideFest Milwaukee 2018 opened Sunday, June 10 to a forecast of overcast skies and intermittent rain showers throughout the day.

“Rain or shine, we are committed to delivering the best possible festival experience,” said Wes Shaver, president of Milwaukee Pride, Inc. “The show must go on — and it will!”
“PrideFest Milwaukee has been fortunate enough to enjoy seven consecutive years of warm and sunny weather,” said Shaver.  “Over the past seven years, we have expanded our covered spaces — including our famous Dance Pavilion, the Wom!nz Spot, the South End Sports Bar and the new Miller VIP decks.  The fact is, our guests have overcome everything from freezing rain to tornado sirens to three-digit temperatures. Nothing can stand between us and our weekend!”
“To quote Dolly Parton, ‘if you want the rainbow, you have to put up with the rain!”
PrideFest’s Sunday line-up is truly not to be missed.  Across 10 performance spaces, over 100 acts are scheduled to perform on Sunday, including Spencer Ludwig, Roxi CoplandDJs from Mars and Dance Pavilion hosts Trannika Rexand Dita Von.  High energy headliners The B-52s close out the festival with an 8:15 performance.  Full Sunday schedule is available online.
