REDUCE & REUSE

 

As an event, Chinook Fest has a deep respect for its natural surroundings and we abide by the sentiment, LEAVE NO TRACE. In an effort to reduce event waste we encourage festival goers to minimize campsite waste, utilize reusable containers and leave the festival grounds in better condition than we found them.

 

This year, Roy Farms is partnering in our sustainability. Consider purchasing a Commemorative Stainless Steel Tumbler (included with Thursday Pre-Funk Ticket) for use in the Beer Garden and to help limit your consumption of plastic cups.

 
SHUTTLE SERVICE

 

Complimentary Shuttle Service will be provided by The Little Hopper. Service is available to Chinook Fest ticket holders who are camping or have Single Day Parking passes at Whistlin’ Jack’s and Squaw Rock.
