Kirkland Winterfest

Saturday, December 4

Located at Marina Park, Winterfest celebrates the holiday season with an evening of performances, activities for kids, bonfires, a visit from Santa, shopping, seasonal surprises and the annual tree-lighting ceremony. It even features a sledding hill with real snow! Winterfest is free to attend. 


Frost Fest

December 4 | 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm 

Following the Winterfest tree lighting, community members are invited to continue the festivities at Kirkland Urban with a live ice sculpture carving, acrobatic performances, a live DJ and magical “snowfall.” Kids (and adults) will also have the opportunity to snap a photo with the Grinch himself.


Visits with Santa
