Travel Information

Please note: There is no taxi service in the town of North Bend.

Flying

If you plan on taking a plane, fly into the Seattle/Tacoma International airport. It's initials are SEA. Keep in mind that once you fly into Seattle, there is still about an hour drive to the festival location. Many people share rides, or simply rent their own car. Your best bet to find a ride if via our Festival Facebook page.

Car Rentals

If you have no plans to car pool with anyone, you should probably rent a car. The only other way to get to the festival (which is an hour's drive away in North Bend) is to take a cab which will cost you more than $80!

If you are looking to joining up with someone, check out the Festival Facebook page to find someone who might help you out.

If you are under 25 and planning to rent a car when you come to Washington, be aware of the following information. Take this into consideration when planning your trip and try to travel with someone at least 25 so you can save money. Those of you under 21 will have a hard time getting a car rental and should probably arrange to drive with someone else.
