MCTS says the detours and delays should last from 6 a.m. Sunday, March 26 until noon the same day.
Milwaukee Marathon's half and 5K are scheduled for March 26, with the finish line to be set up outside of Fiserv Forum.
In a Facebook post, Milwaukee Marathon said it's been working with the city since 2019 to bring the race back but had issues that were out of its control. This year, however, the city approved Milwaukee Marathon's permit.
While the full marathon will not happen in 2023, the organization said it's working to bring it back for 2024.
Runners will be able to take the city on on-foot and explore areas like McKinley Park and the Deer District. The whole race is presented by the Milwaukee Bucks, hence the finish line being at Fiserv Forum.
“Celebrating 55 years of live music is a true testament to this festival. Together with the City of Milwaukee, we look forward to hosting music fans from across the globe at Summerfest and delivering a world-class lineup with hundreds of artists during our nine-day run” said Don Smiley, CEO of Milwaukee World Festival, Inc.
Summerfest will be sticking with the three-weekend format for this year's festival, a format Milwaukee World Festival developed during the COVID-19 pandemic. This year's festival will take place Thursday-Saturday June 22-24, June 29-July 1, and July 6-8.
Organizers say the new format is a hit. Citing a study they did with market research companies, SimpsonScarborough and LEGENDS, they found that 80% of respondents said that Friday and Saturday were "among their three most preferred days to attend Summerfest," according to a news release.
Prior to Thursday's lineup announcement, Milwaukee World Festival announced most of its headliners for the American Family Insurance Amphitheater.
