This is such a great place for music! So many stages and the the ridiculous amounts and variety of food make this a must go event every year.

We were there for the Irish Fest, and not only was the festival nice, but the park was great too. It is just the right size and has a great view of the lake.

Our weekend visit to Milwaukee included the Mexican Fiesta. At any of these festivals I would suggest beginning as early as grounds open as it got much more crowded through the day. We enjoyed dancers, musicians and lots of Mexican food entrees. Choices were plentiful. Late afternoon we caught a wonderful pageant presentation of Mexican tribal Indian history. We even... More

We come up every year for Irish Fest and it is so wonderful to have it on permanent grounds like this. It really is a jewel right on the lake in Milwaukee. We've been to German Fest and Polish Fest as well, but Irish Fest will always be my favorite as they use the most of the grounds and offer... More
