Aurora Pavilion


Introducing the Aurora Pavilion 

During Summerfest, the Aurora Pavilion will host a mix of local artists and national touring acts, featuring diverse artists and genres. The Sound Waves DJ/Dance party concept, which debuted in 2023 featuring popular DJs and elevated lights and sound, will continue to be incorporated into the Aurora Pavilion programming each night. 

The Aurora Pavilion is located in the center of Henry Maier Festival Park, just inside the Mid Gate. Through Aurora Health Care’s support, we will make upgrades to the venue, including:

  • Widened entrance leading to increased venue capacity
  • New permanent video screen
  • Improved accessibility for patrons with mobility limitations
  • Improved access in and around the venue, as well as to public restrooms
  • New hospitality area and backstage artist production support area

Beyond Summerfest, Aurora Health Care and Milwaukee World Festival will partner to provide more public access to the Pavilion through free community events for families focused on arts and entertainment, healthy living and community giving initiatives.
