Irish Fest 2009

Milwaukee’s Irish Fest is this weekend! It is a great festival, with music, shopping and even a genealogy tent. I have been going to Irish Fest every August for many years. I discovered some of my favorite music groups there, including Gaelic Storm and Schooner Fare.

There are more than 10 stages featuring performances of all types of Irish music, Irish dance, and theatre. There are also areas devoted to Irish sports, language, history and culture.

If you are going to be anywhere in the Midwest this weekend, I strongly encourage you to visit Irish Fest. If you can't make it this year, start planning now to attend next year.
