Welcome to the 28th Annual Milwaukee Feis!
Presented by the Milwaukee Feis Society
28 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 2017 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 2017.
Be sure to check out our location page for more information
about the campus and the Milwaukee area.
The wonderful Ryan Duns is playing at our feis this weekend and we are pleased to announce that he will be holding a mass following the Milwaukee Feis this Saturday. Mass will be held at 4:30 p.m. in the Union Theater (2nd floor - where PC and Champ Awards are being presented).
Stage Schedule will be posted here as soon as it is ready – not to be expected before August 4th.
A working competitor List will be posted here sometime after entries open.

Two Important Notes for 2017:
1. There is to be no dancing on the stages on the evening of Friday, August 11th 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.
