We offer some of the most popular food trucks in the Tri-Cities, along with live music, a free kids activity, rides on the Gesa Carousel of Dreams, plus a playground, aquatic playground and more! We often have special guests, such as the Kennewick Police Department, Kennewick Fire Department and others to make it the perfect Friday night out with the family.




Is there a charge to attend?


Sunset at Southridge is a free event to attend, thanks to the support of our sponsors, Retter & Company | Sotheby's International Realty and Toyota of Tri-Cities. You'll purchase food and beverage items directly from the food vendor if you desire. There are no tickets to purchase or admission charge to the event. Your first carousel ride is included with your $7 dinner special purchase and you can purchase additional rides on the carousel if you desire. Carousel rides range from $2-$3 per ride depending on the number of tokens purchased.
