Bring your family and friends to the Kirkland Harvest Festival from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, October 16, at Juanita Beach Park at 9703 Juanita Drive N.E. as the community bids farewell to Summer and says “hello” to Fall.

This free event is hosted by Kirkland Parks and Community Services and sponsored by MorningStar Senior Living of Kirkland.

Kirkland will celebrate the season with food trucks, live music, artisan food and craft vendors, apple cider pressing, tractor-pulled wagon rides, contests like pie eating and corn shucking for adults and children, photo booths, live music, and an outdoor game area for adults. The event also features a Kid’s Korral sponsored by Neal Smiles Orthodontics with faux cow milking and bull roping, ring toss, horseshoes, pumpkin bowling, cookie walk, crafts, and a 4-H area. Parking is limited at the site but there is ample parking across the street.

The City is seeking musical groups to perform at the festival. Are you in a musical duo, trio or small band? Are you looking for the exposure of playing outside to 1,000 plus festival goers? If so, the Kirkland Harvest Festival is a great fit. All musical genres are encouraged. Please contact tharrison@kirklandwa.gov by Wednesday, October 6, if you are interested in performing. Questions? Call 425-587-3352.

The City is also seeking craft and artisan food vendors. The cost to vend is $25 and provides booth space of 10 feet by 10 feet. Applications are due by 5 p.m. on Friday, October 1. Use this link to access the application.

As Kirkland continues to carefully reopen park amenities, city officials remain committed to the safety of the community. They ask that visitors practice physical distancing, wear a face covering or mask, adhere to the phase requirements, and stay home if you are sick. At the Harvest Festival, face coverings are to be worn at all times by all guests regardless of vaccination status. Find out more about our COVID-19 Safety Plan on the city’s website.
