Lakefront looks to build upon 2 successful years of hosting their unique outdoor marketplace.

MILWAUKEE (April 10th, 2024) – On Sunday, May 19th, from 11AM to 3PM, Lakefront will be celebrating spring and all things gluten-free with mouth-watering food, a wide variety of beverages, art, crafts, and other labors of love. After 2 successful years of providing an array of gluten-free goodies, Lakefront notes an increase in vendors and inventories to welcome in a growing customer-base for their outdoor marketplace.

“If the people keep on coming, we’ll continue to make space for them,” says Lakefront’s Executive Chef Kristin Hueneke, “We’re just happy to be able to provide a safe gluten-free event for the community. We’re up to over 40 vendors, 9 food trucks, and we couldn’t be more excited to showcase what Milwaukee has to offer.”

Lakefront Brewery recently released brand new gluten-free New Grist IPA, the third in their line of gluten-free beers. The first one being the country’s first certified gluten-free beer, New Grist Pilsner. The second being their New Grist Gosa Rita, a Margarita Ale. Fans can now purchase a New Grist Variety 12-Pack featuring all three brands.

“After we’ve innovated the craft beer space with Certified Gluten-Free options, we wanted to continue doing positive things for the gluten-free community. Hosting Maifest and turning our CurdWagon into an exclusively gluten-free food truck for the summer months both feel like natural progressions to me,“ says Lakefront Brewery Owner & President Russ Klisch. “Lakefront Brewery is happy to lead and continue to be that provider.” As a special treat, Lakefront will be debuting gluten-free cookies & cream fried cheese curds, an item that may become a staple for the summer.

In addition to their 3 gluten-free varieties being available, Lakefront will also be serving up gluten-free Bloody Marys, specialty coffee drinks, as well as 3 unique gluten-free cask beers available only while supplies last. All food trucks will be serving from exclusively gluten-free menus.

As in years past, Lakefront will be hosting a clearance sale of classic and current swag, décor, and knick knacks. See what they’ve uncovered over the last year and grab it at a discount, first come, first served! While this isn’t a pet-centric event, well-behaved pups are welcome in their outdoor space. Maifest is also a family friendly event. Live entertainment, flower May crowns, glitter tattoos, and twisted balloons will be sure to excite those of all ages!
