Milwaukee Irish Fest is the world’s largest celebration of Irish music and culture. It is held annually on the third weekend in August on the shores of Lake Michigan at the Henry W Maier Festival Park. The festival is presented by CelticMKE, a year-round organization dedicated to igniting a love of Irish and Celtic culture in people across the globe.
Fiona Fitzsimons returned this year with her popular Irish Genealogy workshops, run for people looking to learn the tools to discover their own Irish Family History! The workshops were a great hit, once again, and luckily Fiona also managed to get some time to enjoy all the incredible music and culture the festival has to offer.
The Irish Fest is a showcase of the confidence, diversity and vibrancy of contemporary Irish culture. Here are some pictures from the festival – we hope you enjoy:
