The Bud Pavilion is the one of the largest free music entertainment stage at the Wisconsin State Fair. We feature only the best cover bands from southeast Wisconsin each day of the 11 day Fair, with three performances every day – rain or shine.
The Bud Pavilion houses professional sound and lighting systems, two large HD projection screens on either side of our 36-foot-wide stage and 12 HDTVs installed above our bars, providing the best multimedia experience at the Fair. Our covered, fan-cooled facility seats hundreds of patrons on hot summer days, our three bars serve ice cold Anheuser-Busch products and our grill features unique food items every year. Adjacent to the Goose Island Ale House, built with 100-year old reclaimed barn wood from the Holy Hill area, you can always sample craft beers and still enjoy the live music on stage. The Bud Pavilion is the best destination for live music at the Wisconsin State Fair.
Please remember, there is no smoking allowed anywhere inside the Pavilion at any time for any reason. Remember, if you look up and see a roof, you cannot smoke! Help us keep the air fresh for the Fair!
