“You better move, you better dance” twangs Ke$ha; but at Timber! Outdoor Music Festival you better kayak, mountain bike, swim, stargaze and hike as well. Yes, the name often prompts teeny-boppers to break into high-pitched chorus but Timber! Outdoor Music Festival is so much more than a catchy song; it’s an all-encompassing weekend celebrating the music, community and natural environment of the PNW. The event runs from July 16 -18 in Carnation, Washington. Attendees can camp on the Tolt MacDonald Campground in a typical tent, trailer OR they can rent one of the six yurts.
Who needs Pitbull when you can listen to the sweet sounds of The Dead Milkman, Beat Connection, La Luz, Tacocat and many other local artists? This event has a variety of activities from children’s concerts to “raucous” after-parties – so it’s great for the whole family! Along with the typical camping activities (smores, hiking etc.) attendees are encouraged to sign up for a hilarious game of Bubble Football or participate in a Geocaching event.
