first Thursday of every month
Downtown Kennewick

If there was ever a day to visit downtown, it'd definitely be the first Thursday of the month when the downtown community has come together to create a schedule of family-friendly afternoon and evening events. 

Note: This is not an exclusively HDKP event. We are just proudly part of this grassroots effort made by the whole downtown community. For more information, visit the 1stThursdayKennewick.com or email info@1stthursdaykennewick.com.

Because of the nature of this umbrella event, the details and contacts for each event will be different, so be sure to like the 1st Thursday Facebook page for more details and updates.
