Outdoor summer music fests the whole family will love

There was a time when summer music festivals meant only Folklife and Bumbershoot. Not anymore. While those stalwarts still bookend the summer festival season, Puget Sound-area families have a multitude of options for truly family-friendly outdoor music festivals. It doesn’t matter if you’re looking for a weekend in the woods or something closer to home. Whatever your budget and taste in music, there is a Northwest music festival for you. Several local festivals are not particularly planned with families in mind — think Sasquatch and lately, Bumbershoot — but we've picked out fests that welcome and cater to all ages.

At these five terrific summer music fests, music-loving grown-ups and their kids can all have a wonderful time. Use the arrows above the image to scroll through all the options.
