Kirkland Events & COVID-19

Arts & Entertainment

Kirkland has a vibrant arts and entertainment scene with something for everyone. Attend a performance at Kirkland Performance Center, which hosts an eclectic calendar of events including musicals, live music, comedy shows and more. If a pulsing drumbeat and throbbing guitars are more your scene, many local bars and restaurants dedicate Fridays and Saturdays to all the best in local live music, sure to fill your night with dancing and fun. Coffee shops offer live entertainment throughout the week while our galleries and various installments of outdoor public art give residents and guests the chance to experience the City’s thriving art scene on their own terms. Family-friendly opportunities for entertainment abound! During the summer months, catch an outdoor movie at Carillon Point or a summer concert at Marina Park.
