It’s hard to believe another new year is upon us already! The back-to-back feis schedules for last two years were so popular, I’ve decided to bring it back this year. As always, this list will be updated throughout the year as more information becomes available, but feel free to comment if I missed anything.

Please note that this list is for feis that in the same location on the same weekend. As in previous years, as readers let me know of feis that are not in the same location but are close enough to travel to in the same location, I will include them below.
Note: Cream City Feis and Badger State Feis were back-to-back in 2017; however they are currently listed as being held on July 15 & 21, 2018, respectively, instead of back-to back.
Enjoy the feisin’ in 2018 and best of luck to all!
