Save the date: Cascadia Festival returns to Granite Falls on July 23rd – 26th, 2020!

Join us for 3 days and 4 nights of immersive art & frolic in the beautiful foothills of Granite Falls Washington! 4 stages of live and electronic music, a non-stop lineup of theatrical, dance, and acrobatic performances, large-scale installation art, a curated art gallery to explore and a family-friendly kid zone await you.

We invite all attendees to immerse themselves in the camping festival experience, to be present with themselves and with nature. There is no cell phone service whatsoever within the grounds. This is an opportunity to take a complete digital detox. We thrive when we create our festival together, and seek diverse participation from our region and beyond! -Cascadia

Founded in 2000 with a focus on sustainability and community building, Starborne strives to enrich the community with culturally and socially enlightening productions through creative and interactive collaboration. Uncompromising in its objective to serve as a platform for creative expression, Cascadia NW does not accept any form of corporate sponsorship.

    $200 for 1 person, +$20 for parking ?
    Doesn’t sound like they want many people especially parents.

    CoronaVirus update from Cascadia:

    Greetings Dear Friends and Family,

    We wanted to reach out to send love and support during these challenging times. Please check in on each other and keep yourselves healthy and positive, and most certainly reach out if you are feeling distressed in any way. We’re all in this together, and there is light at the end of the tunnel!

    Given the circumstances with the spread of the C-19 virus in the NW, we wanted to give an update on the festival. Currently, the producers and crew are in a self imposed “pause,” a hold and wait pattern, to see how things progress over the coming months as we approach summer. We are doing this with a positive outlook that the festival will happen as scheduled, while monitoring the situation closely in an effort to make sure that all of our people will be safe and sound to gather together in the forest in July. We will not move forward with planning unless we are confident of everyone’s safety.

    As we wait, it is understood that some of you may be encountering financial difficulties and may need to refund your ticket to put those funds towards other needs. To ease any burdens, Cascadia NW Arts & Music Festival tickets are now 100% refundable for you if you feel the need to do so. Please work through Eventbrite if you wish to get a refund at this time. Also note, you will be able to purchase your ticket back at the same level you purchased it originally if all goes well, and you want to join us.

    For now, we are holding on selling the car camping and RV spots. We will make an announcement about these at a later date.

    We’ve also decided to extend our artists’ submission applications until the 22nd of March, so if you thought you missed the window, it’s still open to you!

    With isolation and uncertainty, this can be a very scary time for all of us, and we are here to share empathy and solidarity with you through this. We highly encourage following reputable news sources, avoiding conspiracy theories, following the instructions of social distancing, hand washing and in general, lessening the opportunity of spreading. Keep in mind that these measures are important to ensuring the safety of those with compromised immune systems and the elderly. Use this time to be creative, read books, call friends and family, or do yoga. For those of us who can, please help support those of us having trouble. Reach out and check in on each other often.

    We are closely following developments, but for now, we are cautiously looking forward to a magical weekend with you all in July! Thank you all for your continued support and your amazing self! We love you, and look forward to dancing with you soon!

    ~Cascadia NW Arts and Music Festival Producers
