About Holiday Folk Fair International

A program of the International Institute of Wisconsin, Holiday Folk Fair International celebrates the cultural heritage of the people living in southeastern Wisconsin.  The 2015 theme, “Celebrate the Culture of Light,” will allow fair-goers the opportunity to learn the ways in which light is incorporated into the music, food, dance, art, and crafts of those that participate in Folk Fair. The Greater Milwaukee Foundation is providing free access to the final day of the three-day event.
