Trinity Irish Dancers at Milwaukee Irish Fest

This summer, dancers from the most well-known Irish dance program, the Trinity Irish Dancers, will leap onto stages throughout Wisconsin and the Chicago metropolitan area. The unprecedented 14 time world champions of Irish dance will thrill audiences with their unique showmanship. While Trinity’s most advanced dancers “lay down the thunder”, showcasing heart-thumping hard shoe numbers with feet that move with both precision and mind-boggling speed, their youngest dancers will melt hearts as they perform traditional Irish jigs. Dancers range in age from 4 to 19 and from beginners to world champions onto professional.

Mexican Fiesta

"Mexican Fiesta brings the sound, culture, and taste of Mexico to Milwaukee’s lakefront this coming August 21, 22 & 23, 2015. Join in on the fun as we celebrate three days of fun, food, Mariachi and Fiesta for everyone. Mexican Fiesta is more than just a celebration; it is a vigorous declaration of community spirit at its best. Education is the key to the future, and through scholarship awards, the festival becomes the gateway to young Hispanics taking their rightful place in society by continuing education. Mexican Fiesta is a cultural foundation concentrating on providing education and cultural events for the growing Hispanic community. Our festival honors culture, tradition and family. Mexican Fiesta encourages individuals form all ethnic backgrounds to share in the beauty of Mexico’s rich history, art, music and food." - Mexican Fiesta Website.
