Kent Cornucopia Days is going to be huge this year! Celebrating its 45th year as South King County’s oldest and largest festival, there really is something for everyone.
Running all three days of the festival is the Street Fair and the Taste of Cornucopia. Featuring a huge variety of vendors, the street fair will feature over 500 vendors. Hungry? With over 30 delicious food booths and two food courts to choose from – not to mention the beer garden – you can find great food for the entire family!
With a tradition going back to ancient China, the dragon boat races on Lake Meridian are amazing to watch. Starting early Saturday morning you can watch over 40 teams compete for medals and glory. It’s absolutely incredible to watch a team in perfect synchronization doing almost 90 strokes a minute propel a boat across the lake and well worth checking out.
If you love soccer, you will love this weekend! Watch top players from Kent compete at fields around the city for medals, awards and bragging rights. Both boys and girls teams will be represented, with teams composed of kids from the U10, U11-12 and U13-U19 brackets. Come out and cheer them on!
Finally, you are going to want to check out the Grand Parade on Sunday afternoon at 2:00 pm. Featuring lots of colorful costumes, drill, dance and marching teams. You also won’t want to miss the Seafair Pirates, our Grand Marshal, Honorary Grand Marshal, City officials, floats, kids, Scouts, bands and more!
