Can/Should I Ride my Bike?
Yes, you should totally ride your bike! We have a bike corral at the entrance gate, where you can leave it your bike and enjoy the festival. You will save on parking (which we do not control) and the hassle of traffic in the area.
Is the event dog friendly?
Because we will be limited in space and because having dogs at the park creates an environment where people would be closer together, we will not allow dogs on the site this year.
Is the event handicap friendly?
The event takes place in a city park with grassy and treed areas through out. The park provides some handicap parking spaces and they are available as first-come first serve basis.
Can I smoke while at the event?
As in the previous year we have a designated smoking area. This will leave the general areas free from second-hand smoke while still allowing smokers a place to do so.
When is the Family Wee Folk Area open? (Subject to Change)
Friday from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Sunday from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Parents must accompany children. You are encouraged to take photos of your child(ren) before entering the park in the event that you get separated.
Does the Kilted Mile registration include entrance to the event? (TBD)
How do I volunteer?
Go to our volunteer page and sign up.
Why do I have to provide my date of birth and driver’s license number to volunteer?
We take the safety of our attendees very seriously. In order to assure that we can verify the identity of each of our volunteers, we conduct a mini background check on all of our volunteers using this information.
Will there be a Mass this year?
Because we are moving to a two-day event this year involving only Friday and Saturday, there will be no Mass celebrated on-site. Coordination of an off-site celebration is being considered.
How can I be a merchandise vendor at the festival?
To be considered for future festivals complete the merchandise vendor form. We consider only vendors selling Irish or Celtic merchandise.
How can I be considered as a performer for the festival?
To be considered for future festivals complete the entertainer form.
Can I be a food vendor at the festival?
Our opportunities for food vending are generally limited to local Irish/Celtic restaurants, pubs, or charitable organizations or to festival sponsors. If you’d like to be considered for future festivals complete the food vendor form.
Why do I have to buy food and beverage tickets so that I can eat and drink (it is so annoying)?
In order to get good partners in food, we share the risk of a possibly rainy weekend. We have a smaller up-front vendor fee and share in revenue from food sales. Tickets make it so that we can track sales. It also makes it easier for the food vendors while not handling money all weekend.
