Attendance in 2014 was 851,000+
Attendance in 2019 was 718,000+
That's a 15% drop in 5 years.
Naturally, Summerfest spun like crazy (and crazy it was!!)
...Despite the fact that there were only 10 amphitheater concerts, and four days of severe thunderstorm warnings, attendance was reported at 718,144.
Had there been the typical 11 amphitheater openings, Milwaukee World Festival, Inc. says festival attendance would be projected at 733,144....
Sure. And wishes were Unicorns, with Fairy Dust, and all the Children lived Happily Ever After.
This ain't good, friends.
