New this year, local restaurants battle it out for the eastside’s best burger
(Kirkland, Wash.) March 5, 2013 --The City of Kirkland uncorks its signature summer festival, Kirkland Uncorked, July 19-21, 2013, in Marina Park on the shores of Lake Washington. The event celebrates the best of Washington’s art, food and wine and features the Uncorked Market and a new burger showdown.
The Tasting Garden (21+ with valid ID, admission required) offers guests the opportunity to taste from more than 80 Washington wines, sample regional cuisine from Kirkland-area restaurants and be entertained by the Northwest’s favorite bands on the main stage. In addition to grilling demonstrations on the beach throughout the weekend, guests will not want to miss these special foodie events:
Kirkland Uncorked guests can also wander the Promenade, free and open to all ages, to shop the Uncorked Market featuring vendors with a variety of wares. The Arts for All Experience invites attendees to participate in art activities from clay throwing to sketching the landscape.

For over 50 years, the Hope Heart Institute has made heart disease more treatable, beatable and preventable. A portion of all admission fees collected in the Tasting Garden will directly fund local research and education to fight heart disease.
