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 2017 – A Perfect 10

Mark your calendar for August 10-13, 2017 and begin planning your trip up to Doe Bay to purchase your tickets this winter season! Doe Bay Fest will be celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2017 with a Reunion Festival, inviting back bands who’ve played at Doe Bay Fest in prior years. This is definitely one not to miss!

Doe Bay Resort will be hosting its 10th annual Doe Bay Fest in 2017! WHOOT! WHOOT! Festival attendees can arrive as early as Wednesday, August 9th, and stay as long as Monday, August 14th.

Festival camping is $100 plus tax. You can arrive as early as Wednesday, Aug 9 and stay as long as Monday, Aug 14. You can purchase a festival camping and ticket purchase through our online store or by contacting the front desk at 360-376-2291.

Tickets are priced at $195 (children 12 and under are FREE). Festival camping is $100 plus tax per tent for a maximum of 4 ticket holders. We offer a ticket discount to overnight guests while supplies last.


Festival Camping

If you buy a ticket, you must pay for festival camping, 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. Festival camping is $100 plus tax PER TENT and accommodates from 1 to 4 people IN A SINGLE TENT (keep in mind you are given a 10’x10’ footprint which works best with a small-medium sized tent). If you want to buy multiple tent reservations and camp together in a little cluster, that works great – but you need to pay $100 PER TENT, and then let us know when you book that you want your multiple tents placed side-by-side. Festival camping includes up to 5 nights of camping, not pro-rated for shorter stays.

Artists – As always we will not announce the artists until shortly before the festival. This year we may not announce at all.  They will be good, talented.  All performers will have already performed at a past Doe Bay Fest, so there’s that.

Doe Bay Fest 10: Transportation

Looking for transportation to and from the festival?  Choose from a privately chartered Water Taxi that will take you directly to and from Doe Bay’s beach in just 45 minutes from Anacortes Skyline Marina, or arrange for a Shuttle Van to take you to and from the Orcas ferry landing (avoid the ferry traffic by parking your vehicle in Anacortes and walking onto the Washington State Ferry).
