Entre fee should of been free. Limited amount of Irish food Not a lot of activities.
great music, friendly folks, could have used more vendors. maybe more of a selection of irish/celtic items.
The Highland games were wonderful-we sat and watched the games, listened to the Irish music or the bagpipes,enjoyed the dancers.
Could use more authentic food
Needs better advertising and social maintenance. The pages all said different times and barely anyone was there past noon.
Great entertainment but not many vendors.
Not enough vendors. All event in the morning even though bands were scheduled into the evening.
The kilt fest was a festive warm and welcoming enviroment with great music, people, and kilts! I went with my sisters and 11 month old baby. It was a truly great scene. Can't wait for the next one!
Not enough activities. It was only the bands and one game going on at a time. It would have been nice to have highland dancers and bagpipers walking around playing music. I would not go back.
don't go... nothing going on except a little music on stage that no one cared about. a few food vendors that were terrible over priced.

"And the award for best men's legs in a kilt goes to..."
That's not a phrase you'd hear at any major awards show, but at Kilt Fest, it's all part of the fun. Held at Mercer County Park, Kilt Fest celebrates Irish and Scottish heritage with a full day of festivities, music, and games—plus, of course, a "Best Men's Legs in a Kilt" contest. Here's what else you can expect:
- Live music from celtic rock bands, including Alternative Ulster and The Skels, plus plenty of bagpipes.
- Highland games with world-class athletes competing in traditional Scottish games, such as the hammer toss, stone throws, and caber toss.
- An epic kilted battle between fictional medieval armies
- Craft beer, including Scottish and Irish ales and stouts, poured by Man Skirt Brewery, Spellbound Brewing, and other New Jersey breweries.
- For the kids: a show blending traditional Irish music, storytelling, and step dancing—this show was featured at the JFK Presidential Library in Boston.
