The 3rd annual Kingston Almost Summer Festival will take place on Saturday May 11th, 2019. This festival celebrates the beginning of boating season here in Kingston, as well as anticipating the arrival of summer and all the fun activities our community provides.
This year’s event will provide many more activities for all ages as well as extended hours for live music. This event could not happen without the generous support of our event sponsors as well as our business community.
We will market this event not only to those living in North Kitsap, but also to residents of Snohomish and King counties. We are targeting to draw 5000 people to the festival.
