Fun in the Summer Sun at Kirkland Urban and Kirkland’s Downtown

Longer days and summer heat means it’s time to put on sunglasses, step outside, and enjoy the best time of year in the Pacific Northwest!

Bring the little ones to Kirkland Urban to cool down at our very own splash pad! Weather permitting, we open the splash pad at the plaza from 10:00am to 8:00pm daily. We also provide free towels to use to dry off before grabbing a bite at one of Kirkland Urban’s food spots.


And if you’re looking for more fun around Kirkland, check out our list below of some of the best local events happening this summer. Don’t forget that you can park at Kirkland Urban for up to four hours FREE with validation from any Kirkland Urban restaurant or retailer – including QFC! Kirkland Urban is just a short hop, skip and jump from all the events listed below.

Kirkland Downtown Association is excited to host their famous Summer Concerts at the Marina – recently named in USA Today’s list of best outdoor concert series. After a special kickoff concert on Wednesday July 3rd, shows are held every Thursday night through August and are a wonderful opportunity to see live music against the backdrop of the Kirkland waterfront. Pack a picnic from QFC or grab a bite to go from Shake Shack, Soi, Vinason, or Rare Tea to round out your evening of enjoyment.

And, don’t forget to check out the Wednesday Farmers Market at Marina Park! From 3:00 – 7:00pm every Wednesday through the end of September, bring a basket along to shop local artisans and food vendors and connect with the greater Kirkland Community.
