MUSIC, GAMES, & SHREK
SEPTEMBER 3RD, 2022
HUMBOLDT PARK, MILWAUKEE, WI & STREAMING ON TWITCH
ONCE UPON A TIME...
There was a movie called Shrek. Shrek was widely acclaimed for its subversive humor, realistic farts, and sincere heart. It truly was the greatest story ever told. People began to gather from all across the land to celebrate “Shrek” and to be loud. It was through this strange obsession that Shrek was born anew.
WHAT IS SHREKFEST?
Shrekfest is an annual festival celebrating self-love and counterculture, featuring the main ogre himself, Shrek. We offer a variety of experiences from games to live music to a movie screening at the end of the night.
Shrekfest 2022 will be held on the Saturday of Labor Day Weekend: September 3rd. The event is officially open at 3pm and will end at 9pm.
Our location will be Humboldt Park in the Kingdom of Milwaukee in the land of Wisconsin.
Shrekfest is proudly outdoors every year, rain or shine! We don’t mind a little mud, in fact, we welcome it! However, we do advise people to check the forecast and come prepared accordingly. Umbrellas for rain, jackets for high wind, water bottles for hot days, or picnic blankets for sitting on the grass are all good ideas to bring yourself.
Without music, the wind would be gone from Shrekfest’s sails. The bands that play throughout the day help keep things alive and bridge the time between events like the onion eating and roar contests.
ARTS & CRAFTS
A recent (but popular) addition to the festival is the arts & crafts table! There’s always supplies to come and draw some Shrek fan-art or try out some specially themed crafts.
Shrekfest is a fairytale! That means there are a lot of fun and unusual characters featured throughout the franchise. Pick your favorite and dress up as them! You could win a trophy for your efforts! Whether or not you compete in the costume contest is up to you, but it’s quite fun to apply some face paint before you arrive.
Out of time to assemble a costume before the event? No worries! We have an event that only requires your beautiful voice. In the roar contest, everyone lines up and gives their best Ogre-ly roar! But be careful, the competition can get quite fierce!
The biggest, and most daunting, of the events at Shrekfest is the onion eating contest. A small group of dedicated fest-goers line up to eat an entire onion as quickly as possible. In recent years, it was such a close competition that we had to do a second round between two semi-finalists.
Each year we always get a small selection of special items to raffle off! What items in particular? Well, you’ll have to see for yourself!
To round off the evening, everyone gathers together and watches the movie that started it all: Shrek. Without this masterpiece by Dreamworks, we wouldn’t be here now over 20 years later, celebrating the body positivity and self-love that Shrek shared with the world.
WHO RUNS SHREKFEST?
Meet 3GI. Shrekfest is not a concept we own. We don’t work for Dreamworks, we don’t shut down other festivals that go by the name of “Shrekfest”, in fact, we encourage people to spread the love and wholesome fun of Shrek wherever they can!
That being said, we believe we are offering people a unique experience at the Shrekfest hosted every Labor Day Weekend in Wisconsin. We’ve been doing this since 2014, so we are very familiar with the ins and outs of running a festival, and we LOVE doing it too! This is why we brand ourselves as “3GI’s Shrekfest” or “3GI Presents Shrekfest” this way, people know that they’re getting our special swamp-loving ogre-wildin’ expertise when looking at the handful of other Shrekfest scattered across the globe.
