Have A Taste, Not A Bite
The battle of the food festivals continues July 17th-19th as the Kirkland Waterfront takes on the Seattle Center. With an onslaught of art, style and taste, Kirkland Uncorked is ready to show the Westside how the eastside does a three-day summer celebration.
Beginning Friday, Kirkland Avenue, and Marina Park will transform into Artists’ Lane, showcasing over 60 of Northwest Art Alliance’s Best of the Northwest artists. After strolling through Artist Lane, guests can put their newfound inspiration to use and stop by the “Arts for All” exhibit in the Kirkland Uncorked Promenade. The exhibit includes clay throwing demonstrations, drawing activities including a still-life model, kids’ art activities and watercolor demonstrations. All kinds of artists are welcome from the fledgling doodler to the accomplished artiste.

Sounds of the area’s top jazz musicians and bands from Pony Boy Records will fill the Marina along with the tunes of 98.1 Classical King FM will resonate throughout the waterfront.
