Welcome to the 27th Annual Milwaukee Feis!
Presented by the Milwaukee Feis Society
27 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 2016 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 2016.
Be sure to check out our location page for more information
about the campus and the Milwaukee area.

Two Important Notes for 2016:
1. There is to be no dancing on the stages on the evening of Friday, August 12th 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.
