More than 150 acts will perform on six stages.

"For 150 years, the Catholic Church has taken root in northeastern Wisconsin. Just think of all the disciples of the Lord Jesus who have been nourished by the Good News in this beautiful diocese! As Disciples on the Way, we have so much to be grateful for. Let us rejoice and celebrate these 150 years united in God's Church, in this wonderful place we all call home."
