One of the many great things about Kent is the numerous activities and events that take place each year around town. From Kent Presents& The Kent School Horse Trials, to the most recent big event, The Gilmore Girls Fan Fest, the town of Kent at times may double - that's right, double - the population of the town, usually in a small area, for a limited time.
These large events are a welcome part of the Kent culture. We at KVFD want to make sure your events are safe, so you can focus on your event!
