Northwest Roots Festival Announces Dates!!

The Northwest Roots Festival is happening July 7th & 8th in Enumclaw WA. The festival will feature 2 stages showcasing both local and national touring bands and late night festivities with the best local DJ’s.
Tickets price includes 2 nights of on-site camping with parking, live music, late night festivities, beer garden, and the best local food and craft vendors.
It started with an idea, “Wouldn’t it be fun to get all of our friends together to camp and play music?” We had no big production company with deep pockets, no corporate sponsors, just a couple of people in the local music scene with a desire to create an experience around live music and camping.
With over 800 people in attendance, the first year was truly a grass roots event and we could not have done it without you. Year 2 is shaped up to be bigger and better and wetter. This year we have moved to new location that will allow for growth and a better experience. Come get down for some fun in the sun, tunes you can groove to, local food local art and local music!
