We are proud to help sponsor the first Timbrrr! Winter Music Festival this weekend. Need some help making a decision? Here are three reasons why you should go...
1. You will be transported to a winter wonderland
Imagine trekking into a quaint Bavarian village in the middle of nowhere, with nothing in the chilly air except for some dude playing the Alphorn - Leavenworth, WA gets pretty damn close to this.
In this unique festival, music lovers can take over this German-inspired town for the weekend and travel abroad without leaving the states.
Why a festival in the winter time? Timbrrr! Co-organizer Kevin Sur says "The inspiration came from us wanting to celebrate a different season here in the great Northwest. All of our events took place in the summer and are definitely defined by the best the Northwest has to offer during that time, but it made sense to do something that also celebrated how great this place is in the winter."
2. This is a celebration of great Pacific Northwest music and community
The amazing folks at Artist Home have set up another badass lineup of music showcasing some incredible music from the Pacific Northwest. There will be a wide array of bands, ranging from the well seasoned pop of Telekinesis to the innovative crooning of Radiation City.
Not only is this festival a great chance to see so many amazing bands in one place, but you'll also be supporting independent, blue collar musicians while helping creative festivals like this continue and grow.
3. There will be snowshoeing and hot toddies
Need we say more? Not only will the music festival be awesome, but the surrounding experience will equally match it. There's a ton of local pubs, places to hike and ski in the area. We're crossing our fingers for dogsledding. Check out the Festival Guide here.
