Like whiskey? Then you’ll love Kansas City Irish Fest’s Jameson Irish Whiskey Tasting Tent, which is available for guests 21 years and older. Attendees with a valid I.D. will be able to enjoy a sampling of up to six whiskeys in a forty-five minute presentation by a Jameson Ambassador, followed by a 15 minute Q & A. Whiskeys include: Jameson Standard, Bushmills Black Bush, Jameson Caskmates, Redbreast 12Y, Bushmills Single Malt 10Y, and Jameson Black Barrel. Tickets are $30 in advance online. Admission IS included with your ticket this year!

Back by popular demand are the ‘High Mark' tastings which feature High Mark whiskeys. This special tasting will include: Redbreast 15Y, Jameson Cooper’s Croze, Jameson Gold, Green Spot and Bushmills Single Malt 21Y. Tickets are $55 in advance online. Admission IS included with your ticket this year!

In addition, our Whiskey Bars are open to the public and can be found on the Terrace level and near the Magner's Park Stage. These are the only places at the Fest to get Whiskey.
