Timber! Outdoor Music Festival, Carnation

Dates: July 27–29

Cost: Kids 12 and younger free; $65–$95 per day or $150 for a weekend pass; camping, $55; parking, $20. Prices go up June 1.

One of several festivals hosted by the folks at Artist Home, Timber! is the Seattle music festival that's easiest for families. You can camp or commute to see the lineup of primarily local indie artists, such as Jeff Tweedy and Black Belt Eagle Scout, augmented with kid-focused sets from The Not-Its! and the 8-Bit Brass Band. There are both free and paid special activities for all ages; kids will love the craft times and story hours, and the whole family can enjoy stargazing and swimming at Tolt River Beach.
