Summerfest offers free koozies and a chance to win 2021 Big Gig tickets

With less than a week until the day Summerfest 2020 was going to open, with the Beebs on the expanded Amp stage, it's understandable you might be a little down.

To try and brighten your mood, the folks over at the Big Gig are hoping you'll make your own summer fun at home and are offering a small token to help you do it in Summerfest style.

Sitting on a mountain of 2020 koozies, Summerfest wants to share them with you.

So, this Saturday, from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m., head over the American Family Insurance Amphitheater / Summerfest Box Office, 639 E. Summerfest Pl. at the
Henry Maier Festival Park and grab up to four 16-ounce can coolers.

Some of the Summerfest food vendors – like Famous Dave's, Charcoal Grill, Pitch's/Miss Katie's, Saz's and Pizza Man will also have limited quantities of koozies available.

Please respect social distancing rules while waiting. The coolers will be handed out through the box office windows to minimize contact and ground markers will help show 6 feet of distance.

On the day the Big Gig was supposed to start – June 24 – Summerfest launches its new branded merch via its website.

During the initial announced run of the festival – June 24-July 5 – post a photo or video of your own DIY Summerfest (smart folks will make sure that koozy is featured), using the hashtag #DIYSummerfest on Facebook, Twitter and/or Instagram and you could win tickets to next year's Big Gig.
