 2021 Festival 

At this time, we are making plans to produce our 40th festival the third weekend in August. 

We are working with and evaluating input from Milwaukee County, the WI Health Department, and the State on how to safely produce a festival. We also continue to monitor CDC guidelines and government updates as we make preparations.

The festival will have an online component, which will offer additional, exclusive Irish themed programming.

Sign up for our e-newsletter below to receive updates as they become available. Sláinte.
