With its miles of parks and trails, scenic open spaces, and expansive gathering areas, Redmond is uniquely suited for outdoor events. Event organizers can count on beautiful spring and summer days, quintessentially Northwest colors in the fall, and mild temperatures in the winter months. Consider Redmond for open air festivals, parades, weddings, markets, fundraising events, and more!
Redmond offers a range of fields and facilities that can be adapted to meet your sporting event’s needs. The city is home to 60 Acres, the largest soccer complex on the West Coast. Its 25 game-grade fields can easily accommodate everything from youth camps and adult leagues to large-scale local and regional sports tournaments. County and local parks provide sporting events with a variety of unique venues to choose from, including the only velodrome in Washington state, and our well-maintained trails make excellent courses for marathons and other running events.
Redmond is a hub for arts and culture. From Ananda Mela in July to Redmond Lights in December, the city is proud to host culturally and artistically enriching events that enhance our diverse community. Centers for the arts, like VALA Art Center and SecondStory Repertory, help promote Redmond’s thriving art scene and create spaces for all kinds of artistic expression, from plays and concerts to gallery showings, art workshops, and hordes of dancing zombies.
