Generac Auctions Guitars Signed by Summerfest Artists

MILWAUKEE — Generac will auction off nine guitars at the end of Summerfest, all signed by artists performing on the Generac Power Stage.

According to a Summerfest press release, Generac invites all artists performing on the Power Stage to sign one of nine guitars. Then, at the end of the festival, the American Red Cross will auction off the guitars.

The press release says the proceeds will support American Red Cross international services, which help those affected by conflict, such as the situation in Ukraine, natural disasters and other global humanitarian crises.

The Red Cross has set up a webpage where you can browse and bid on guitars. Friday morning, the website still says to come. However, once posted, you can find the guitars here.

This year’s Generac Power Stage lineup includes The Black Crowes, Violent Femmes, Anthrax, GAYLE, Modern English, Death Cab for Cutie and more.

Additionally, Summerfest and Generac will honor military service members on July 1, Military Appreciation Day. There will be a military appreciation ceremony with a presentation of the colors, vocal performances and a speech by an Army Staff Sergeant.

“Generac Power Systems is thrilled to bring such a strong and diverse music lineup to Summerfest as we celebrate the second year of the Generac Power Stage at the festival,” said Aaron Jagdfeld, President and CEO of Generac. “Additionally, as a company that has hundreds of veterans on our growing team, Generac is proud to sponsor Military Appreciation Day on July 1. It gives us all the opportunity to ‘to honor the brave soldiers of our country and to recognize their unwavering commitment and devotion to our country.’
