Welcome to the 23nd Annual Milwaukee Feis!
Presented by the Milwaukee Feis Society
23 years ago we began this feis with a humble 400 dancers.
The Milwaukee Feis is now one of the largest,
and is the longest running feis in Milwaukee,
and we are very proud
to still be keeping the tradition alive today!
Once again, the 2012 Milwaukee Feis will be held at the Student Union at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (2200 E. Kenwood Blvd). This is a gorgeous campus and a great place for a feis. With plenty of room to spread out, places to eat and fun for everyone around the neighborhood, we are happy to hold our feis at this location once again in 2012.
Be sure to check out our location page for more information
about the campus and the Milwaukee area.
New for 2012 - we will be holding a new dance-off for all Preliminary Championship competitors who place 1st, 2nd or 3rd on the day of the Feis. Please see the History page for more details.
The final version of the stage schedule is available HERE.
The Final Milwaukee Feis 2012 Competitor List is now available HERE.

Two Important Notes for 2012:
1. There is to be no dancing on the stages on the evening of Friday, August 10th due to insurance purposes.
2. Camping will be in designated areas only. There will be Milwaukee Feis and UW-Milwaukee staff strictly enforcing this at all times on Saturday.
Please note that, if you leave your belongings in any area at all marked no camping, your items will be removed and brought either to UW-Milwaukee security or the Feis Office.
Please avoid having this happen to you by sticking to the designated camping areas only.
