Milwaukee Irish Fest will help holiday shoppers spread Celtic cheer through a unique event that helps people discover gifts from the Emerald Isle and beyond. The Celtic Boutique showcases Irish and other wares from vendors, artists and crafts persons. In addition, guests can tour the Ward Irish Music Archives, home to the largest collection of Irish and Irish American sheet music in the world with more than 5,000 sheets of music and other music related items. When attendees work up an appetite, they can enjoy a break at Café Celtique. Menu items this year include scones, potato soup and McBob’s famous corned-beef sandwiches.
