Briggs & Stratton Big Backyard


The Briggs and Stratton Big Backyard, a 6,000 – 8,000 capacity outdoor stage/venue was completed in 2011 to not only serve as the backdrop for live concerts over the 11 days of Summerfest, but provide more flexibility for use by the Ethnic and Cultural Festivals that occur throughout the festival season at Henry Maier Festival Park. In addition to the stage, the area includes food and beverage buildings, large image magnification video screens, restrooms and an elevated VIP Deck.
