Feis Seattle Competitions Sunday 

Emerald City Feis Competitions Saturday 

Photos from this event will be available for viewing and purchasing by visiting Allen Welsch Photography approximately one week after the event. Check back for a direct link at that time.




The Emerald City Feis is the result of a lifetime of friendship and collaboration between the teachers of Baile Glas Irish Dancers and Tara Academy of Irish Dance. Established in 2003 by Maggie Corrigan, Sara Williams, Sara Leekley, and Patti Gats, the Emerald City Feis has been the joint effort of these two Seattle Irish dance schools.

The feis enjoyed eleven successful years at the Northwest Rooms at the Seattle Center, from 2003 to 2013, before that venue became unavailable for further rentals. In 2014, the Emerald City Feis moved to a new downtown location, and we look forward to many more years of feising and friendship.

Based on current King County directives and guidance from the CDC for an eight-week moratorium on events over 50 people,  we are cancelling the 2020 Emerald City and Feis Seattle feiseanna scheduled for May 2nd and 3rd.  The feis weekend is always a highlight of our year and we will greatly miss the gathering of friends, teachers, judges, and musicians, and all of the fabulous dancing from the competitors.  We will be issuing refunds to those dancers who have already paid their fees and are working on getting a 2021 date secured at our venue. Please feel free to contact me at with any questions that you may have.

Thank you for understanding and best of luck to all,
