That's compared to 38,731 people in 2021 and 46,000 in 2019, the last time the festival was held over four days.
PrideFest had five stages and 400 people involved - including entertainers and stage crews. They also had 197 vendors selling food, merch, sponsors and other items.
Milwaukee Pride president and CEO Wes Shaver issued a statement , saying:
“PrideFest as a whole struck a different chord this year. It’s hard to put into words, but it’s clear to me that PrideFest’s appeal as a festival (in its most base and simple form) is the widest it’s ever been. Tens of thousands of people flooded Henry Maier Festival Park to not just support LGBT people and spaces, but to participate in them and the music, dancing, food and fun.”
