08 Since 1981, Milwaukee Irish Fest has been bringing the sights and sounds of Ireland to Milwaukee. Celebrating its 35th anniversary, this year's festival will be the largest celebration to date with more than 100 acts on 17 stages. With 10 new bands and a comedy show, as well as four special 35th anniversary exhibitions, visitors will have plenty of new things to see and do. Arts, Crafts & Culture At the Cultural Village visi - tors can shop in the Moore Street Market – which hosts the largest gathering of Irish vendors in the world. Or, they can trace their roots with the help of expert genealogists, meet authors in the Literary Corner and check out the "Come Back to Erin" exhibit featured at the Ward Irish Music Archives Gallery. Fun for the Whole Clan Keeping the wee ones in mind, the festival features a large children's area with free activities, including mini-golf, Pot O'Gold prizes, stories and snacks in the Children's Tea Room, coloring and craft areas, as well as the High - land Games. Stop by the Celtic Canines to meet native dog breeds of Ireland, including setters, spaniels and the not-so-little Irish Wol ounds. Sports Festivalgoers are invited to visit the sports activity area to try their hand at hurling in the hitting cage or watch cur- rach boat races in the lagoon.
