Children 12 and under and their families are welcome to come have fun, and the best thing is everything is free of charge!
The family passport returns. It’s a fun way for families to explore Irish Fest, while keeping the whole family entertained. Families collect stamps for their Pirate Paddy Passports at stops throughout the festival grounds, while making crafts and gathering prizes at each stop. Some of
the areas families will visit while on their quest are the Cultural Area, Tipperary Stage, Celtic Canines, and more. Sponsored by Catholic Financial Life.
Located in the Children's area is the Lilli-Putt miniature golf. Children 12 and under and their families are welcome to come have fun, and the best thing is everything is free of charge!
Don’t miss seeing Paddy and Molly walk the Festival grounds with their Irish Fest friends. Parades are held Friday, Saturday and Sunday starting at the North end of the grounds.
Bring your little ones to visit the Leprechaun Village. They can search for gold and even join a special “Leprechaun Kids Club” for fun prizes. The Leprechaun Village contains a bank vault, pub, performance stage, workshop and many other tiny structures. Not only is the display fun to look at, it also contains interesting educational facts about Leprechauns.
This year we brought back many of our popular attractions, such as Lilli-Putt mini golf, the Lego castles/Mr. Potato Head area, and of course the big craft area. Once again children 12 & under can “fish” for prizes in our Pot of Gold. New this year is the children’s cultural area on the playground. Sponsored by Marquette University. Be sure to come explore! Our two stages will feature great family entertainment. See schedule for details.
Enjoy family friendly entertainment at the Milwaukee Irish Fest Children's Stage! Check out the schedule closer to the festival.
Become a Super Hero for the Environment in Greenwish Village! Everyone in the family can play Super Hero BINGO and learn about our planet with hands-on activities. Pick up an ‘Environmental Super Heroes’ coloring book featuring Eco-Man, Volt and more. Challenge your environmental knowledge about energy, trees, recycling and water, or hang out in the Heroes Hideout. You can also create fun Super Hero Gear by turning trash into art!
No festival wouldn’t be complete without fireworks. Sunday evening following the Scattering a wonderful display of fireworks will light up the sky to end another Irish Fest!
