Make a creative escape to Kent

July 2, 2021, Kent, Wash.—Ready for summer fun and flourish? Creativity and culture, art and food are at every turn in Kent, the eighth-most diverse city in the U.S

Artsy Fartsy offers art lessons for children and adults.

Take a trip to Kent with this itinerary:

Rusty Raven Studio, where every second Saturday kids get free take-home art projects. Their gallery wall is always changing and ready to inspire.

Honor our region’s Indigenous community with a visit to the Kent Historical Society to view the handcarved red cedar piece from the Snohomish people. This is just one stop on Kent’s self-guided art tour.

Take a private art class at Artsy Fartsy Art Lessons. Put the brush to canvas and make magic happen under the expert tutelage of Susan (a Kent icon!).

Play outside. In Kent, art isn’t confined to a wall. The West Fenwick Park playground is newly renovated AND has a real-life playable version of the Chutes and Ladders board game. Plus, it’s completely ADA accessible.

Taste global fare and creatively prepared dishes along the International Eats Food Trail. Seven new stops have been added, with specialties from Kenya to Japan.

Now is the time to check in to Kent for new, surprising and creative escapes. Find more travel inspiration and overnight stay options at visitkent.com.
