Kirkland Events & COVID-19

Sports Events

Kirkland is a sparkling waterfront playground perfect for outdoor sporting events of all genres. We are perhaps best known as the home of the Junior League Softball World Series, a world-renowned annual event organized by Little League International. The week-long series is held every summer in the City’s Everest Park, a lush green space that features baseball fields, grandstands, children’s play area, pickleball courts, restrooms, interpretive trails and more!

Our accessible shorelines and public beaches make Kirkland an ideal place for kayaking and boating events, competitive running, cycling and triathlons. The Kirkland Kids Triathlon, hosted by the Kirkland Parks & Community Services Department and held annually at Juanita Beach Park, features a 50-yard swim splash, a half-mile bike ride and a 400 yard run and is a wonderful way to introduce kids age three through 12 to the exciting sport of triathlon!
