Free Family Fun in Historic Downtown Kent

Join Kent Downtown Partnership for their second annual HAWKTOBERFEST celebration and car show where we honor and cheer on our favorite Seattle football team with a vibrant display of team-themed vehicles!

Saturday, Sept. 24, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event is free and fun for the whole family. Location: Meeker Street in historic downtown Kent between First and Fourth Avenues.

  • Live DJ
  • Kids’ activities
  • Special guests including Wilson the Pony
  • Special surprises!

Discover historic downtown Kent and make a day of it, or even better, stay for the weekend. Kent has a variety of hotels and motels to choose from, and many activities, shops and restaurants to enjoy after the car show.

Interested in entering a car in the car show? The cost is $20, and we’ll be registering vehicles beginning at 10 a.m. the morning of the event. Proceeds raised from the event will support Kent Downtown Partnership and its work to sustain and revitalize small businesses in downtown Kent, Washington.
