Dogs: Just a reminder that Dogs are not allowed at Tolt-MacDonald Park during Timber! Outdoor Music Festival. Please visit www.rover.com to see dog sitting options within 10 minutes of the Festival.

Parental Guidance Suggested: While we love having children at Timber! (always free), we want to remind parents that we believe in an artist’s right to self expression and will never ask artists performing on our stage to censor their lyrics. With that in mind, we highly recommend that you listen to one of our playlists prior to the festival so that you can choose which artists you may or may not want your children to see and hear. 

Also, please be keep a close eye on your children if you choose to visit the beach or be near the river. There is no lifeguard on duty and the river current can be dangerous. 

Alcohol: Due to WA State liquor laws, no outside beer or alcohol is allowed on the premises. However, we’re proud to be serving some fine beer, wine and seltzer at incredible prices.

No Firearms: Timber! Outdoor Music Festival is a private event and as a private event, firearms are not permitted beyond our festival entrance.

Cannabis: While cannabis is legal in WA state it is illegal to consume cannabis in public. Cannabis is not allowed at the event.

River Safety: We encourage people to enjoy the river but please be aware that rivers are dangerous.  Floating the Tolt can be an amazing time, but please stay within the property of the park. We have no pull outs below the North border of the park and if you miss that pull out, you are on your own.

Please pay attention to the currents, stay safe and have a buddy. There is no lifeguard on duty.
