Summerfest returned this summer with an expanded line-up of performers and an extended format. Following their post-pandemic format from last year, Summerfest took place over 3 weekends rather than the traditional two. This not only allowed Summerfest to pack the event with more entertainers but also clean the Henry Maier Festival Park and restock food venues. Some of the notable entertainers the past two weekends included The Wailers, Anthony Hamilton, 2 Chainz, Howard Jones, Mindi Abair and The Wild Hearts Jazz, MIT-rapper, The Commodores, and K.C and The Sunshine Band. The final day for Summerfest will be on Saturday July 9, 2022.
