2016 Show Update

It has been quite a while since we’ve given ye an update on what’s been happening on the road with Kommando Kilts. 🙂

Believe it or not, we’re already into our 7th weekend at the Colorado Renaissance Faire and we’ve just been having a grand ‘ole time! So sad to think there are only two more weekends left celebrating this wonderful festival’s 40th anniversary. 🙁 Time sure does fly by quickly when we’re having fun, especially considering all the spiffy getups we’ve witnessed throughout our time here. I couldn’t resist sharing, just see for yerself!

Don’t worry, there’s still some time for ye to make it out and join in on all the Renaissance Fair shenanigans! Two more weekends left to go, so come on out, if ye can, in all yer Celtic pride and glory.

If ye didn’t already know, the Bristol Renaissance Faire’s been quite exciting as well! We just wrapped up Weekend 3, where ye’ll be sure to find big men in kilts. 😉

I absolutely cannot wait to see what’s in store for us on Weekend 6 (August 13-14), which is the Bristol Fair’s Celtic themed weekend!! Don’t hesitate to swing by our shop before in preparation for this particular weekend to ensure yer Celtic attire is up to par! 😀

Also, don’t miss us at our upcoming shows! In August we will be attending GenCon in Indianapolis, IN, as well as the New York Renaissance Faire in Tuxedo Park, NY.

Norman, OK Medieval Festival Was A Success

What a great second show of the season we had last weekend in Norman, Oklahoma! We were at Reaves Park for the Norman Medieval Festival this past Friday through Sunday, outfitting families, friends, and all the chic Scotsmen (and women) who know the value of a good, comfortable kilt!

If you came out to see us at the Kommando Kilts booth, you know what a perfect weekend it was to come and enjoy this festival. The weather was GORGEOUS, and so were all the smiling faces we got to connect with over the course of the weekend. We always get excited to see some familiar faces when our return customers pop in to hang out and browse for new Scottish style to add to their wardrobes! It was equally exciting to see so many new lads and lassies checking out the Kommando Kilts tent. There’s nothing better than making new friends and sharing our unique Celtic craftsmanship. We take pride in outfitting our customers with quality kilts and handmade real leather footwear made right here in the United States!

We even made a couple of new feathered friends last weekend!

Hanging out with the owls was just one of the interesting things to be seen at the Norman Medieval Festival. These events are such a blast as festival-goers get to interact with all the culture, art, music, dancing, and other entertainment that is around every corner. We had an especially good time with the Scottish Belly Dancers. This group of performers came to hang out with the Kommando Kilts team and show off some serious Scottish moves; it was fantastic!

We want to thank everyone who came out to the festival in Norman last weekend so much; we’re so glad we got to enjoy such a beautiful, fun weekend with all of you, and we CAN’T WAIT to see who makes it out to our next event! We’re already geared up for the Georgia Renaissance Festival’s opening weekend, which will take place this Saturday and Sunday! And don’t worry, if you can’t make it to the Georgia Renaissance Festival this weekend, we’ll be around with our amazing selection of Kommando Kilts all the way through June 5th!

We hope to see all of you during our time in Georgia; we love making new friends wherever we go to enjoy the experience with. Get your tickets to the festival here, then come say hello and find your favorite way to GO KOMMANDO! 🙂

North Texas Irish Celtic Festival in Dallas

We’ve just kicked off the festival circuit season and what a blast our first show was! Kommando Kilts sold superior Scottish style all weekend long at the North Texas Irish Celtic Festival in Dallas. This happens to be the second largest event held at Fair Park. (The state fair claims to be the first largest event to take place on the fairgrounds). Starting on Friday evening, we were there all evening, all day Saturday, and all day Sunday. The Kommando Kilts booth was bumpin’!

North Texas Irish Festival

We had such a great time, per usual, but we especially enjoyed all the entertainment floating around the Automobile Building at Fair Park. There were Irish dancers, singers, and characters of all shapes and sizes. The atmosphere was whimsical and buzzing with the Celtic pride, complemented by the excitement of Irish music filling the room.

That Saturday at the North Texas Irish Festival, as usual, was our busiest day of the show–we love the craziness and all the interesting, enthusiastic characters we got to meet throughout the experience. We were there with all of our casual and tartan kilts, sporrans, kilt pins, handmade leather footwear, ladies dresses and chemises, and so much more. We had four to five Kommando Kilts employees working the booth at this show. Our favorite thing is seeing return customers come visit our booth again and say hello to us, which we had a lot of at the North Texas Irish Festival. But, of course, we also love meeting new customers and sharing with them the joy of traditional Scottish attire!

Our next show will be at the Medieval Faire in Norman, Oklahoma, beginning the first weekend in April at Reaves Park. Again, we’ll be there with all of our casual kilts, tartan kilts, handmade leather footwear, and TONS of beautiful Scottish accessories for the discerning Celt! We hope to see all our fans and customers out there, ready to GO KOMMANDO!
