The City of Kirkland uncorks its signature summer festival, Kirkland Uncorked, July 15-17, 2011, in Marina Park on the shores of Lake Washington. The event celebrates the best of Washington’s art, food and wine with activities and exhibits throughout Kirkland’s picturesque waterfront and downtown.
The Tasting Garden offers guests the opportunity to taste from more than 60 Washington wines, sample regional cuisine from Kirkland-area restaurants and be entertained by the Northwest’s favorite bands on the main stage.
