Milwaukee Irish Fest, renowned as the world's largest Irish culture festival, was established by members of Milwaukee's Irish community to showcase its rich Irish heritage. Under the direction of Ed Ward, Irish Fest premiered in Milwaukee, the city of festivals, in 1981. Irish Fest showcases Irish music, history, dance, drama, sports and culture. The festival features Irish and Irish American talent, and serves as a stage for up-and-coming local performers.
