A Rich History

Kent Downtown Partnership (KDP) celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2017.  For more than 25 years, Kent Downtown Partnership’s passionate board and tireless volunteers have been compelled to ensure downtown Kent is a destination for residents and visitors alike. From rain-activated sidewalk art to decorative lighting atop our downtown businesses, numerous events for all ages, and our close connection and cooperation with the

City of Kent, we work year-round to encourage the vitality of the downtown core.

In January of 2018, downtown Kent in conjunction with KDP was recognized as a neighborhood council by the City of


Kent, opening additional opportunities for downtown Kent and its residents to receive recognition, financial support, and a route to involvement in the civic process.

We love it here and think you will, too. For additional information about visiting Kent and planning your trip
