Maifest 2023

May 21, 2023
11:00 am - 3:00 pm
Lakefront Brewery

It’s back! The return of Lakefront Brewery’s Maifest – a gluten-free friendly celebration of Spring!

Join us as we embrace the warm weather with an outdoor celebration featuring a variety of vendors dishing out food, beverages, art, crafts, and other local flair. The entire area to the East side of our building will be transformed into a makers market that will keep your hands full! Take in views of the Milwaukee River and skyline as you sip and nosh on the best gluten-free goodies Milwaukee has to offer. This event is meant to accommodate those with a gluten-intolerance and will feature all gluten-free food and beverages (with the exception of some of our beers). Maifest is also kid friendly! Don a flower May-crown, get a kids glitter tattoo, and enjoy live entertainment as you frolic to your heart’s desire. While this isn’t a pet-centric event, well behaved pups are welcome in our outdoor space.
No ticket needed, just come on down and pay a visit to our newly renovated riverwalk patio!

> Don’t miss the traditional German dancers that will be dancing throughout the festival. S.V.E.V. D’Oberlandler will raise the Maypole at Noon and will continue to uphold the dances, music, garments, and customs of Bavaria.
Gluten-free Bloody Mary’s made by yours truly!
> A Lakefront Brewery clearance sale! We’ve sifted through our warehouse and will be selling Lakefront swag, décor, and other knick knacks at a discount!
> The CurdWagon cheese curds will be gluten-free! (the gluten version will still be available inside!)

The Drink
Lakefront Brewery beer will be flowing as expected. Not only the title track, Maibock, but we’ll be pouring from 13 different taps featuring both gluten and gluten-free offerings. Show up early to snag a Maifest-branded tasting glass to sample with (while supplies last!). Just like last year, we’ll be pouring a variety of different handmade gluten-free casks from our Brewer, Tyler. Canned soda, bottled root beer, and NA beers will also be available for those not of age or avoiding alcohol.
