Things To Do
There is no place like Kirkland!
Boasting a population of about 90,000, Kirkland offers a unique amalgamation of urban and rural, with everything from high-end boutique shopping to rugged hiking trails. The City boasts a vast array of waterfront adventures and a splendid collection of public art, including one of our latest installations, “Dandelions,” by Polish artist Mirek Struzik. Located at Village at Totem Lake – one of Kirkland’s newest emerging shopping districts – these beautiful dandelions put Kirkland on the map as one of only a few places around the world with permanent art installments by the world renowned artist.
Kirkland is best known for its love of history, its friendly, welcoming vibe and its stunning beauty.
We are home to many well-known beloved, signature events, including Kirkland Uncorked, Kirkland Summerfest, and Kirkland Oktoberfest, which all take place in showstopping Marina Park. Informally known as the City’s front doorstep, Marina Park is alive with glorious sunsets, lakefront views and talented buskers. For a one-of-a-kind evening stop by Kirkland Urban, a veritable mecca of fun things to do and delicious things to eat! You can experience high-tech entertainment at Lounge by Topgolf, Topgolf’s first ever Lounge model with digital golf and other sports – including Zombie Dodgeball – and an elevated menu with food to die for! If you’re more traditional, grab a bite at Vinason Pho & Grill and a delicious craft brew from Chainline Brewing, and then head downstairs to ryan james fine arts to see the latest exhibit.
