Kohl's Captivation Station and Family Day return to Summerfest

This morning, Summerfest announced the return of both Kohl's Captivation Station and Kohl's Family Day.

The Captivation Station, located at the south end of Henry Meier Festival Park, will be open every day of the Big Gig from noon until 7 p.m.

The kids-themed programming includes Color Wheels, an art-making experience brought in partnership with the Milwaukee Art Museum; Design It! Mobile Lab, a Discovery World-sponsored area for unique, hands-on projects; Wild Theater, featuring conservation-based theatrical performances; and the Building Blocks Workshop, a Penfield-sponsored play area with developmental services and equipment for children of all abilities.

The Captivation Station will also feature performances by the Radio Disney Road Crew, Comedy Sportz, Mad Science, Milwaukee Community Circus, The Figureheads and more. The full schedule will be made available on Summerfest's website beginning in June.

Meanwhile, Kohl's Family Day will be held Sunday, June 29 between noon and 3 p.m. The first 2,500 attendees who donate three non-perishable food items will receive a free ticket to Summerfest for that day. All the food donated will go toward the Hunger Task Force.

Summerfest runs June 25-29 and July 1-6. Some headliners – including the final open Marcus Amphitheater show on July 1 – are still to come, so stay tuned.
