Klement's Sausage Company announced as new Summerfest sponsor
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – Summerfest has announced a new 10-year sponsorship deal with Klement's Sausage Company.
The deal includes the building of a new stage area, to be called "The Klement's Sausage & Beer Garden," as well as Klement's being named the Official Sausage of Summerfest.
The news comes just a few months after the announcement that after 25 years, Klements and the Brewers are no longer partnering.
The Klement's Sausage & Beer Garden will be located on the North End of Henry Maier Festival Park and will feature acoustic music from 2-8 p.m. daily, spotlighting local artists. The new space will have a "backyard feel" with a seated lounge area, picnic tables, barbeque grills, as well as locations to purchase Klement's products.
Construction will begin immediately on the new Klement’s Sausage & Beer Garden, which will make its debut during Summerfest 2018. For more photo renderings of the new stage area, please click here.
