You still have time to claim your Summerfest Fan for Life giveaway prize

Are you a Fan for Life winner? On Sunday, July 9, Summerfest distributed 30,000 tickets valid for admission to Summerfest 2018. Each ticket contained a symbol correlating to a prize in the Fan for Life promotion.

Festival officials announced that as of today there are unclaimed Fan for Life prizes and, in an effort to award their fans, have extended the deadline to Aug. 31, at 5 p.m. The Fan for Life giveaway took place during a special "Cheers to 50 Years" ceremony as a way to wrap up the 50th edition of the festival and thank fans for their loyalty and support.
