Irish Fest 2017

Milwaukee’s Irish Fest is the largest of the ethnic festivals held at the Summerfest grounds (Henry Maier Festival Park) and holds claim to the largest celebration of Irish Culture in the world. This year Irish Fest takes place Thursday, August 17th and runs through Sunday, August 20st.

County Clare is offering FREE Shuttle service to and from Irish Fest. The shuttle will drop-off and pick up about every 1/2 hour at the south gate. Join us for authentic Irish/American fare and a pint before and/or after the Fest. We will also have Irish music on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings.

To accommodate the quickest table seating, we will NOT be accepting restaurant reservations during Irish Fest. We apologize for the inconvenience.
