Welcome to the Kirkland Downtown Association

The KDA was founded over 20-years ago, to help Kirkland businesses, especially small businesses, grow by bringing people into our downtown area. We host a variety of free community events such as the Kirkland Wednesday Market, Summer Concert Series, Waterfront Car Show, and Winter programs throughout the year. These events bring tourists and local residents into our picturesque downtown area to shop, enjoy our restaurants, cafes, galleries, and the waterfront. Our programs and activities support the vibrancy, economic health, and inclusion that will keep Kirkland a growing, lively and wonderful place to live, work, and play.

What We Do
