NEW VENUE!!!

Great Lakes Feis is now in Toledo Seagate Convention Center

Exciting News!

We have just confirmed an invitation from the Toledo Museum of Art to host a parade of champions at their gorgeous Peristyle Theater. The top 3 placers in the PC & OC competitions at the Great Lakes Feis will be invited to perform at 7:00 pm. Admission for all is free ($5 parking). The art museum is 1.5 miles from the feis venue - about a 4 minute drive.

 

We hope all feis goers will want to attend & then go to the Glass City Fies the next day, July 24.

 

Mass will be held at the end of the day in the convention center at one of the stages. Signs will be posted in the afternoon.
