Kirkland Summerfest is back this year August 10-12. Kirkland Summerfest is a three-day music and arts fest with incredible live performances, outdoor entertainment venues, purveyors of delicious foods, local beers, wines and family focused arts and entertainment.

This year will be bigger and better than ever. Summerfest is excited to expand its family-centric activities to the KidZone at Heritage Park. Kirkland Summerfest is a perfect weekend full of celebration and joy.

The festival will also offer spectacular entertainment including KEXP favorites on the Main Stage in the beer garden. Summerfest is proud to present a fantastic lineup including The Dusty 45s, Nite Wave, The Black Tones and Creme Tangerine.

Be sure to explore the expanded Art Fair presented by Ryan James Fine Arts, bouncy toys and rides at the 11-acre KidZone at Heritage Park, the all new Create Zone at Heritage Hall, Beer Yoga and Beer Zumba presented by Columbia Athletic Club, shopping and food at the Street Fair presented by Evergreen Health, and of course, local beer, wine, and cocktails in the Beer Garden.

Kirkland Summerfest is a benefit for the Kirkland Downtown Association and other local non-profits. Many thanks to The Greater Kirkland Chamber of Commerce, Explore Kirkland, Kirkland Cultural Arts Commission, Rotary Club, Kirkland Arts Center, Kirkland Interfaith Network, and KEXP.
