Welcome to the 24th Annual Milwaukee Feis!

Presented by the Milwaukee Feis Society

24 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 2013 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 2013.

Be sure to check out our location page for more information
about the campus and the Milwaukee area.

Dance-Off for the Milwaukee Feis Perpetual Trophy
All Preliminary Championship competitors who place 1st, 2nd or 3rd on the day of the Feis. Please see the History page for more details.

Dennis Dennehy – Treble Reel Proceeds to Benefit the Dennis Dennehy Memorial Fund

The man who suggested the creation of a feis in Milwaukee 25 years ago, unfortunately, passed away this past March. Dennis Dennehy was not only one of the great dance masters in the United States, but a legend in the world of Irish dance. The Milwaukee area was proud to have had him as part of our Irish dance scene for so many years. His legacy lives on in his daughter’s teaching and so many of his students who have gone on to teach themselves in the Milwaukee area, Chicago and around the nation.

Dennis Dennehy.jpgFor 2013, $5 from every Treble Reel entry will be donated directly to the Dennis Dennehy Memorial Fund. Dennis was survived by his wife, the great teacher herself, Marge Dennehy, their daughter, Kathy Dennehy, who teaches weekly here in Milwaukee, their son, Dennis Dennehy and grandson, Connor Dennehy. Dennis Dennehy’s impact on the Milwaukee area and throughout the world is endless!

If you are not able to participate in this year’s Milwaukee Feis,
but you would still like to donate, or, if you would like to make
a greater than $5 donation, please contact the Milwaukee Feis directly at
milwaukeefeis AT gmail DOT com.

Two Important Notes for 2013:

1. There is to be no dancing on the stages on the evening of Friday, August 9th 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.
