Family Activities

Family PassportChildren 12 and under and their families are welcome to come have fun - Best of all, everything is free of charge!

Family Passport

The family passport is a fun way for families to explore Milwaukee 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.


Don’t miss seeing Paddy and Molly walk the Festival grounds with their Milwaukee Irish Fest friends. Parades are held Friday, Saturday and Sunday starting at the North end of the grounds.

Leprechaun Village

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.

Children's Area

Just past the rainbow and castle are fun activities, such as Lili-Putt mini golf, the Lego/Mr. Potato Head Area, crafts, Highland games and prizes at the Pot O' Gold. Explore the Children's Cultural Area on the playground, complete with a children's tea room, and the Irish Discovery Zone. And, of course, enjoy family-friendly entertainment at the Milwaukee Irish Fest Children's Stage sponsored by Cedar Crest Ice Cream.

Greenwish Village

Explore the Power of Green! Use your personal power to pedal a bike to make your own smoothie snack, examine a solar oven and even make compost balls in our Gaelic Garden. Games for kids also include Trash Art, Recycle Ring Toss and It's a Wormy, Wormy World. Adults will love our "Green in Fifteen" talks on a variety of topics including composting, gardening and recycling. "Green in Fifteen" talks happen half past every hour.
