Tickets At Door Only


We’re offering a range of ticket prices for folks with different income levels.

We want the event to be accessible to everyone. So if you need to pay less, pay less, and if you can pay more, pay more! You’re generous support helps us keep the festival going each year.

Remember that you need festival passes and meal passes are separate tickets, so if you want to eat out of our kitchen please buy a meal pass.

It’s VERY helpful if you buy your tickets now so we have an idea of attendance level, and some funds to access to pay for supplies. Please, please, PLEASE…

Circus On the Water

Circus on the Water is an outdoor circus show featuring circus talents from all over the country and abroad. The spectacle of juggling, acrobats, comedy and aerials is takes place on a floating dock and suspended above the reflecting lake at the Lookout Arts Quarry; the audience enjoys the action from the terraced seating on the shore.

*Please note we may move the show to the Cirque Lab if it’s raining ‘a lot’. Check back here for details.


  • Advance $12
  • Door $15
  • Youth 12 and under are free.
  • Doors open 7:30 show at 8

Circus Campout

Circus Campout is a gathering of circus artists, professionals and hobbyists, who gather for three days of workshops, shows and play.

We are a community driven event where attendees are encouraged to share their skills and performances. Workshops in the past have included handstands, dance trapeze, acro yoga, juggling siteswap, fire breathing, street performing, loud whistling, knife throwing…and so much more.

Last year we had over 40 different workshops. Workshops run for three days from Friday morning until Sunday evening.

Lookout Arts Quarry

Bring a tent, a plate/bowl, coffee cup (avoiding breakables is ideal), water bottle, utensils, and swimsuit, or not, for the best clothing optional swimming in the Northwest.  

Gluten free and vegan options available at every meal…that said it’s not a gluten free kitchen.

    Is this a family event?
    Children are welcome at Campout. We don’t have children specific activities, but there is a world of water, dirt, rocks and trees for them to tromp around amongst. Please note swimming is clothing optional and there are no lifeguards on duty. Also the Quarry grounds can be rough and dangerous in certain places so we ask parents to be mindful.
    Can I bring my pet?
    Is vending available?
    Not currently. As we grow this may change.
    Can I volunteer / get in for free?

    Yes. Volunteers pay for their food ticket, but admission tickets are waived.  We also don’t turn anyone away.  Let us know if you are unable to volunteer, but still need help with your ticket. Contact for more info.
