Small Business Saturday

small business logoSmall Business Saturday – the Saturday after Thanksgiving is a HUGE shopping day for most Kirklandites and visitors.  The town will be lit up in lights, and people will be Downtown for a full day of shopping, eating, and enjoying the ambiance of Kirkland.

Here are a few things you can do to ensure a successful day! Utilize the Small Business Saturday package that American Express provides!  Order it now and be prepared!  Make sure you are fully staffed, as it will be a busy day between Small Business Saturday and Winterfest!

We would like to invite our local restaurants and businesses to take part in Winterfest!  Would your business like to be a vendor at Winterfest?  We would love to offer our limited spaces for our very own Kirkland businesses.   Please fill in the form below for all vendor inquiries.


The KDA lights up the trees and lamp posts throughout the City, and your donations help support this effort!  To become a vendor, contact or to sponsor, contact
