Summerfest conflicts with Rosh Hashanah

 

The new dates for Summerfest conflict with Rosh Hashanah, which starts Sept. 18, 2020.

Summerfest had been scheduled for early summer, as usual, but due to the coronavirus it has been rescheduled to Sept. 3-5, 10-12 and 17-19, 2020.

“We certainly don’t take the dates lightly by any means,” said Milwaukee World Festival Board Chair Howard Sosoff, who many years ago served on the Milwaukee Jewish Federation board. He said the decision was “dictated by a very short calendar.” With all the bands involved, these were the only practical weekends, he said.
