Johnsonville is newest Summerfest sponsor

Johnsonville has been announced as the newest sponsor of the annual Summerfest event in Milwaukee, according to a report from WKOW ABC-27. The Sheboygan Falls-based company is taking over the space on the festival grounds previously occupied by rival sausage company Klements. This comes after Summerfest filed a lawsuit against Klements in December over unpaid sponsorship money, which court records show was recently dismissed.

This year, Summerfest opens on June 22.
