“We spend a whole year planning each Milwaukee Irish Fest celebration, and we’re thrilled to shine a spotlight on what our guests can expect this year,” said Mike Mitchell, executive director of CelticMKE, the organizer of Milwaukee Irish Fest. “Once again, we’ll have world-class entertainment from a wide variety of genres, great food, sports, cultural activities, and fun for the whole family.”
The 2022 festival also signals the return of Thursday night's preview, known as the Grand Hooley, with parts of the festival grounds open to help kick off the weekend. The festival will conclude on Sunday with the traditional “Scattering” event, where dozens of entertainment acts will convene on one stage as a send-off to next year.
