The Shamrock Club of Wisconsin - Wisconsin Irish Pride - Wisconsin Irish History - Milwaukee Irish Life

Six Decades Of Celebrating Wisconsin's Irish Life and Pride

In 1960, The Shamrock Club of Wisconsin started a revolution in the life of Irish Wisconsin. The organization started small, but eventually became the wellspring of Irish life and culture for much of Milwaukee and the State of Wisconsin. Where there was a void in the cultural side of life, soon the Shamrock Club would fill it with parades, Irish dancing, an Irish festival, scholarships, and so much more.

Shamrock Club Milwaukee Chapter Donates $1040 to Milwaukee Irish Fest

As we reach the beginning of August, our thoughts naturally turn to Milwaukee Irish Fest. This would have been the 40th annual celebration for the world's largest Irish/Celtic music and cultural festival.

We're all obviously heartbroken at this year's festival being cancelled, but the celebration will go on through IRISH FEST AT HOME, an online festival and fundraiser at Milwaukee Irish Fest At Home

The Shamrock Club of Wisconsin was the very first donor to the festival, with an initial seed money contribution in 1979, two years before the first festival, and we have been a strong supporter ever since.

In addition, we annually sponsor the Gaeltacht at the fest; we operate a retail booth and booth in the cultural area, and we’ve participated in the Annual Mass for Justice and Peace, as well as the daily parade on the grounds.

Please help us support Milwaukee Irish Fest, a 501c3 non-profit, by contributing to the Shamrock Club’s page. Donating is easy and safe.

The Shamrock Club of Wisconsin, Irish Fest's most loyal supporter, is proud to donate $1000, plus an additional $40, a dollar for every year! We are eventually looking to raise $5000 in the Shamrock Club's name!

Your donation will help them recover some of the over $200,000 spent in preparing for this year's festival. Additionally, you will be helping with 2021 Milwaukee Irish Fest preparations, the Milwaukee Irish Fest Youth & Children's Choir, Summer School, School of Music, Ward Irish Music Archives, and their Foundation.

If you prefer to mail a donation, the address is:
CelticMKE, 1532 N Wauwatosa Ave, Milwaukee, WI 53213.

Make sure to bookmark this page and come back often to check our progress!

THANK YOU!!
