Kilt Fest NJ is a gathering of Scottish and Irish, Celts and Gaels to celebrate our culture. Kilts are encouraged and pants are optional. Events at Kilt Fest include the Highland Games, a Kilt Run, a Fictional Medieval Battle, Bagpipers, a concert featuring great Irish and Scottish bands, a Beer Garden featuring locally made Celtic Craft Brews from local breweries, Kilt Contests, and great craic in a beautiful setting at Liberty Lake, Bordentown, NJ.
Kilt Fest NJ starts out with the Kilt Run in the morning. The run is 2 miles and open to all ages. The only prerequisite is that all runners must wear a Kilt!
The Highland Games begin in the morning as well. Watch world-class athletes toss the caber, hurl the hammer and throw heavy stones for distance and height in this ancient Scottish sport. The athletes will demonstrate and guide any person who wishes to try their hands at the different Highland events including the caber toss. At noon, a kilted battle will take place between two armies who will use real weapons and armor. There will also be a one on one tournament at the end with prizes for the top combatants.
There will also be vendors selling Irish and Scottish Food and merchandise.
This is a one of a kind event, open to all who are interested in the history and culture of the 7 Gaelic Nations. Don't Miss it!
