"Matt Miller's passion and dedication to promoting Irish and Celtic heritage were unmatched," said John Hogerty, President of the Irish Fest of the Fox Cities Board. "We are honored to continue his legacy and produce a festival that would make him proud."
With Ornua Ingredients returning as its presenting sponsor for a third consecutive year, Irish Fest of the Fox Cities excitedly announces Eileen Ivers and Skerryvore as its headlining acts for 2024. The festival will also include a cultural area, activities for the wee ones, retail, and a variety of food and beverages, including Guinness.
Planning efforts are underway with the help of festival organizer Bridget Ward from Milwaukee Irish Fest and Mark Hudson, a longtime fest volunteer and friend to Matt Miller. The organization is grateful for their involvement and the expertise they’ll bring to the festival. "Fox Cities is a terrific Irish festival that has really gained a great reputation,” said Ward.  “I hope to continue that and introduce some new ideas to unite our volunteers, fans, and community.”
