Timber! Outdoor Music Festival

Timber! Outdoor Music Festival is a weekend of fun, nature and community at Tolt-MacDonald Park, with a musical line-up of local and better-known indie rock acts, like Car Seat Headrest, Thao Nguyen and Naked Giants. It’s close enough to the city that families can sleep in their own beds at night but camping at the park might be more fun. Timber is expressly family-friendly, with free admission for kids 12 and under and “Camp Timber” on Friday and Saturday mornings with special kids’ concerts, arts, crafts and science experiments. Parents can join kids for festival-sponsored S’mores-making on Friday and Saturday nights. Splashing in the river is a popular activity for folks attending this fest.

When: Thursday–Saturday, July 12–14

Where: Carnation, Wash.

Cost: $40–$50/day or $110/weekend pass for adults; ages 12 and under free. Camping $40/tent and parking $20/car.
