Culture Dose: Timber! Outdoor Music Festival

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.

The welcoming fest, described as essentially being “a big neighborhood campout” takes place at a densely forested 574-acre park situated at the confluence of two rivers. An alluring lineup features musicians like Shovels and Ropes, Sera Cahoone, Shelby Earl, Cataldo, Star Anna and DJ Greg Vandy, as well as Saundra and Starr (of Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings) and A True Loves “Soul Revue” with Adra Boo (of Fly Moon Royalty).

About Corinne Whiting

Corinne, an east coast native who relocated here from the other Washington in 2011, was bit by the travel bug early on. She lived in Strasbourg, France (during her junior year at Georgetown University) and in Edinburgh, Scotland, where she got a masters degree in Cultural Studies. She feels very grateful to have explored incredible spots on our globe ranging from Bolivia and Egypt to Turkey and China, but there are passport pages yet to fill (and travel tales yet to be written!). After serving as associate editor at Where magazine in D.C. for five years, Corinne has embarked on a new adventure here in the PNW as a freelance writer and photographer, contributing to publications like National Geographic Traveler, the Alaska Airlines in-flight magazine, Amtrak's OnTrak, 1889 Washington, 1859 Oregon, Visit Seattle and so on. She loves exploring this incredible corner of the country while debunking the rain myths, upping her coffee quotient, hearing heaps of live music and finding her Zen near the water as often as possible.
