Summerfest fans can hit the bricks

Summerfest fans can secure their place in Summerfest music history with the new Summerfest Commemorative Paver Program.
Each brick paver will be inscribed with a personal message or tribute and placed in a new area that has been created as part of the south end renovation project, the Beat Street Plaza, located just inside the new south gate.
Three brick sizes and designs are available, ranging from $75 to $200.
Additionally, replica pavers are available for purchase with each order. The replica paver is made of the same material and includes the exact message inscribed on the installed paver at Henry Maier Festival Park. All replicas include a plaque commemorating each purchaser’s place in Summerfest history along with an official “Certificate of Recognition” suitable for framing.
“We are excited to offer a new way for fans to get involved and literally become part of Summerfest history,” said Don Smiley, president and chief executive officer of Milwaukee World Festival Inc. “Beat Street Plaza will be a place for festival-goers and visitors from around the world to share in the memories, excitement and magic that Summerfest creates every year at Henry Maier Festival Park.”
The Summerfest Commemorative Paver Program falls on the heels of the completion of phase one of the south end redevelopment project, which features a new 6,000 to 8,000 capacity outdoor stage/venue, the Briggs & Stratton Big Backyard, a new south gate and box office, as well as new food and beverage buildings and restrooms; all ready for Summerfest 2011.
Phase two of the project will begin in the fall after the festival season.
Summerfest 2011 will take place through July 10.
Fans can purchase commemorative pavers by visiting or calling 1-855-FEST-PVR.
