A can’t-miss, low-maintenance weekend of fun, music, nature + community.
Now that 4th festivities have come and gone, it’s time to plan for our next big adventure. Timber! Outdoor Music Festival, we’re looking at you. Next weekend—July 13 through 15—a much-anticipated community gathering is calling your (and our!) names, beckoning music lovers of all ages to Carnation (just 30 miles from Seattle), where awesome summertime tunes come to a tranquil, wooded setting.

From the deep reds of vine maple on the western slopes to the golden yellow of alpine larches on the eastern slope. But that’s not all that makes the hillsides light up in autumn. We have fiery reds and oranges in huckleberry shrubs, brilliant yellows of the aspens, and a variety of different berries in many hues–often against a backdrop of crisp blue sky.
Spring into action with scenic hikes and an authentic Northwest meal in the Evergreen State.
