Doe Bay Fest

What is Doe Bay Fest? Doe Bay Fest is a four day grassroots festival featuring music, food, drink, camping and activities in the unique setting of the Doe Bay Resort and Retreat.

Many people love Doe Bay Fest for the camaraderie, the gorgeous surroundings, and of course for the music. Updates on the festival are posted to twitter, facebook, and here on the website. Check out videos of the festival on vimeo and YouTube too! (Doe Bay is not responsible for 3rd party content on these sites).


Doe Bay Fest 2018

Mark your calendar for the 11th annual Doe Bay Fest from August 1-6, 2018.  Music typically begins Thursday afternoon, but anyone with onsite accommodations, including festival camping, can arrive as early as Wednesday at 3pm to pick-up wristbands, tent tags, and/or check-in at the front desk if staying in a premium campsite or accommodation.

  • THURSDAY – Music will begin in the afternoon with Open Mic in the Doe Bay Cafe.
  • FRIDAY & SATURDAY – Enjoy musical acts throughout the day on both the Lower and Upper Field Stages, as well as in the Yoga Studio and a secret show or two in the later evening hours.
  • SUNDAY – This has become a very special day of music and fun with a quieter and more intimate vibe as the crowds begin to diminish.


Early Bird Tickets are available for purchase NOW through June 1, and are priced at $195 (kids 12 and under are free). Teen Tickets (ages 13-17, accompanied by a full-paying adult) are priced at $70 with the option of volunteering a few hours to help with Doe Bay Fest’s Camp Doe Bay.

Festival Camping

If you buy a ticket, you must also purchase a festival camping tent tag, unless a friend has arranged a place for you in their tent, you’re staying on a boat or in one of Doe Bay’s premium campsites, yurts, domes, or cabins, or you can prove alternate accommodations on Orcas. A tent tag is $100 plus tax, giving you a 10’x10′ footprint to set up a small-medium sized tent assigned to one of our festival camping areas. Each festival camping tent tag can accommodate from 1 to 4 people IN A SINGLE TENT. You can purchase multiple tent tags and camp together in a cluster, but you will need to pay for each tent tag. Festival camping includes up to 5 nights of camping (Wednesday-Monday), not pro-rated for shorter stays.

On occasion, we do release upgrade opportunities for our cabins, yurts, domes, and campsites.  Click HERE to see what’s available!

Yes. We’ve opened up a limited number of spacious OFF-SITE car camping sites on Orcas Farm. PLEASE NOTE, THESE ARE UPGRADE OPTIONS ONLY. If you haven’t already done so, you must first purchase your Doe Bay Fest tickets and tent tag package before purchasing a car camping upgrade.

Absolutely! This special opportunity allows for you to trade the cost of the ticket and camping or just a ticket in exchange for roughly 6-12 hours of festival work (work hours vary depending on option you choose). Past volunteers have loved volunteering not only because of the work-trade experience, but also because of the many people they met and the bonds they created! If you are interested in becoming a volunteer please contact Heather at Hurry, positions fill fast. And for those of you that have already purchased tickets – there is an option to get them refunded and volunteer instead!

New this year: volunteering opportunities for teens, ages 13-17! By volunteering a few hours with Doe Bay Fest’s Camp Doe Bay, tickets can be purchased at a price of $70 per teen ticket.

First, we strongly advise you NOT to bring a car if you can help it. That is the worst way to get here. If you have to bring a car, please make sure every seat is full.  As an alternative to bringing your car, we offer 1) the RockStar option of taking a water taxi directly to Doe Bay’s Otter Cove, and 2) the economical option of our shuttle van. These seats sell out quickly. Purchase yours today!

UPGRADE to a Premium Accommodation

On occasion, we will release premium accommodation and ticket packages consisting of a yurt, cabin, or premium drive-in or walk-in campsite along with a set number of tickets.

Getting To Doe Bay Fest


Arrive like a rock star! With a direct route between Anacortes and Doe Bay Resort, the water taxi is your best value option for fast, easy travel.


Avoid the vehicle ferry traffic and jump on the most economical transportation option Doe Bay has to offer, with several shuttle options to and from the Orcas Ferry terminal all weekend!

We'll Pay YOU To Bring Your Kids
