Des Moines Beach Park
It may be the last unofficial month of summer before school starts, but the sun is still shining, so let’s make the most of it!
Des Moines Beach Park is located eight miles from SeaTac International Airport, and offers families an endless amount of fun! Visitors will find a play area, natural area with trails, a walking path, creek, picnicking area, a beach with scenic views and so much more.
Poverty Bay Blues & Brews Festival
This event is the prime fundraiser for the Music4Life program, which expands music education for youth in our schools. Enjoy a day filled with local blues together with a variety of local brews, a BBQ of bratwurst or famous tri-tip.
Summer Concert Series
Bring a blanket or picnic dinner and enjoy entertainment with the whole family. Kids’ crafts will be offered weekly, as will a beer and wine garden serviced by Destination Des Moines.
Des Moines Marina
Rent a single or double kayak from the Olympic Outdoor Center and peacefully paddle your way across the water, or if you’re an adrenaline-junkie, Seattle Dive Tours provides equipment and guided scuba tours of the Des Moines Wreck, a 55-foot, wooden-hulled sunken ship. The marina is also home to large sailing yachts, small fishing boats and a variety of fresh seafood restaurants, such as Anthony’s Homeport.
Des Moines Waterfront Farmers Market
The farm comes to you at the Des Moines Waterfront Farmers Market every Saturday and Wednesdays in August! Fresh, local and sustainable are the norm at the market, which brings together more than 50 farms, crafters and food vendors by the Des Moines Marina for a relaxing shopping experience. The market is hosted at the Des Moines Marina on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. from June through September and Wednesdays from 4 to 8 p.m. in July and August.
