The Family Forest Festival is coming and this year it is expanding to three locations.
What is the Family Forest Festival?
That was the question I had when I first heard about it. Apparently it started last year in Oregon as a way for families to get together outside. This year it is being held August 18-20 on Whidbey Island in Washington, September 8-10 in Alsea, Oregon (a bit south of Portland) and September 22-24 close to Dayton, Ohio.
Families can camp in a secure setting with their kids and not worry about much because everybody else there is camping with their families. But that’s only the beginning. There will be a stage with kid friendly performances, hikes, classes and more. Attendees will find field games and activity booths among the offerings to keep people occupied during the day.
Early bird tickets are sold out, but there are still regular price tickets available. Adults are $145, kids ages 7-17 are $10 and under 7 are free. The service fee changes depending on which state/festival you are going to attend (taxes, laws and regulations, etc.).
