Pumpkins in the Park 2021

Events

2021 saw the intrepid return of many of our beloved, signature Kirkland events, including Kirkland Summerfest, Kirkland Uncorked, Kirkland Oktoberfest, the Kirkland Waterfront Car Show and others! Kirkland events are a longstanding tradition for many, enticing returning guests from near and far to sojourn on our sunny shorelines, indulge in our award-winning restaurants and dance the night away in our lakeside parks. Some events, introduced in 2020 as a brave way to rise above the pandemic and celebrate the opportunities available, have returned in 2021 as beacons of hope and reminders of resilience. The Kirkland Winter Market is one such event! Held in November and December at Kirkland Urban, the Kirkland Winter Market is the perfect place to buy one of a kind goodies for everyone on your shopping list.
