The Budweiser Pavilion is the largest free entertainment stage on the Wisconsin State Fairgrounds, and we take that very seriously. Providing only the best music, food and beverages at the Fair, the Budweiser Pavilion is an active, exciting venue to visit – whether it’s Wednesday Night Live, the Wisconsin State Fair or Harvest Fair. We select the most popular cover bands from southeast Wisconsin to perform on our 36-foot-wide stage, which boasts a professional in-house sound and lighting system for a great live concert experience. We have multiple HDTVs, bars and menu items available from open till close. And we have seating for hundreds at “barrel,” picnic and traditional tables throughout the Pavilion.
The Budweiser Pavilion is attached to our Goose Island Ale House which serves craft beer selections and features special tappings. Both facilities are fan-cooled and open on the sides for great airflow on those hot summer days, and both allow plenty of audio/visual access to the live entertainment.
Patrons are asked to be polite and have a good time, and Budweiser Pavilion staff and security help keep the culture safe. There is no smoking inside the Pavilion, so the air is clean for you and for us (our simple rule is, “look up! if you see the roof, you can’t smoke!”). We ask that everyone visiting the Budweiser Pavilion is as courteous to our staff as they are to you. We have always taken customer service seriously and our only expectation is that the kindness we give is the kindness we get back.
Overall, it’s a heckuva experience at the Budweiser Pavilion. Join thousands of people to watch a game on our large projection screen TVs, meet friends over by the grill for lunch, relax at the Goose Island Ale House with a specialty beverage or get on the dance floor and rock out with the band. We’re here for you!
