About

Northern Mid-America Championship

Mark your calendars for June 19, 2016! We are thrilled to be hosting the Northern Mid-America Championship at the beautifully renovated (Oct 2015) InterContinental St. Paul-Riverfront. The InterContinental provides many conveniences during the competition weekend, including a location two blocks from the venue for Saturday's Twin Cities Feile, cost-effective hotel rates, discounts on parking and dining for hotel guests and much, much more. We are focused on bringing you an NMA Championship experience that tops even our great inaugural event in 2015! The Northern Mid-America Championship was created to promote Irish culture in the Minneapolis/St. Paul surrounding area through the art of Irish step dancing and music. By supporting our young dancers and musicians, we are not only helping them reach their full potential but are also providing an opportunity for them to gain confidence through performing and competing. We thank the Irish music and dance community in the Twin Cities. We look forward to seeing everyone on June 19th!
