Art. Music. Theater. Science. Create Zone at Heritage Hall is an interactive hub of exploration into the creative side of the imagination. Located at the geographical center of the festival, Create Zone is a great place to start your family journey through Summerfest. In 2018, we had the Lake Washington High School Robotics Demonstration, winning artists creations on the theme of Robotics, and the popular Drop In Drawing Jam. Participants also learned about Kirkland's fabulous Studio East and listened to live music by the Kirkland Civic Orchestra.

Rotary Duck Dash

Each year participants join us for the Kirkland Rotary Club's annual Puget Sound Duck Dash! The race is held during the Kirkland Summerfest weekend celebrations. Proceeds from 2018 benefited the Kirkland community including high-school scholarships, winter coats for children, the Boys & Girls Club, TeenCenter, Miracle League Baseball, and many other important causes. We look forward to seeing you at this year's race!
