Holiday Folk Fair International

November 18 November 20

The 79th annual Holiday Folk Fair International returns to the Wisconsin State Fair Park Exposition Center in-person Nov. 18-Nov. 20, after two years of being virtual due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“The International Institute of Wisconsin (IIW) and its board of directors are extremely excited that the 79th annual Holiday Folk Fair International will once again allow those from a wide variety of cultural backgrounds to experience in person the traditions of dozens of ethnic groups that call Milwaukee and the surrounding communities home,” said Alexander Durtka, Jr. of the IIW. 

“Maintaining the event in a virtual format for the last two years allowed us to share Folk Fair with people around the world, and we know they will join us when we gather in November at the State Fair Park Exposition Center.” 

The three-day Holiday Folk Fair celebration includes artisans, photography exhibits, and international performers. Enjoy traditional music and dance in the All Nations Theater, sample diverse cuisine in the World Cafe, and sip a beverage and listen to live music at the International Coffee House

Heritage Lane features rich cultural traditions and customs with interactive exhibits, while the International Bazaar provides a one-of-a-kind shopping experience. 

Youngsters can learn about their heritage in the Children’s Area, and visitors of all ages can watch exciting chefs’ demonstrations.
