Building community one smile at a time

fun + community

We love to have fun. In fact, that's why we got into the events business.  We also love our community. So we decided the best way to combine these two passions was to throw big parties and invite everyone we know. Before long, we learned we were on to something. 

Kirkland Events, born in 2012 as a group of community events organizers who developed Kirkland Oktoberfest. As Oktoberfest grew to become Seattle's authentic Oktoberfest tradition, we expanded too as a full-service events production and management firm.

At Chump Change Productions and Kirkland Events, we and our team of 500+ volunteers are proud to support our community through our many wonderful non-profit partners. We invite you to join us!

Here are a few photos of our team, showing who we are and what we do.
