4 Peaks Loves Kids!
4 Peaks Presents loves kids! Many of us are parents, as well as kids ourselves. A major part of our mission is to make sure children are having as good of a time—if not better—than their parents. The 2017 4 Peaks Music Festival Kid’s Area will feature more of everything; arts and crafts, juggling, hula hooping, sensory activities, and of course, FUN! More importantly, 4 Peaks gives children a chance to hear their favorite bands and discover new ones—just like the adults.
While 4 Peaks tries to come up with new and fun things for kids to do each year, it is the children who provide the frenetic excitement. From dancing with mom and dad to running the grounds with friends, kids have plenty of opportunities to tire out. In the past, they loved to check out the Furthur Bus and the crazy photo booth, as well as the pizza and ice cream.
The walk from your campsite to the venue is only a couple minutes. That’s helpful for both parents and kids! At night, you and your family get to camp underneath the endless stars and the watchful Cascade Mountains. Thanks to Webformix, the movie under the stars was a huge success and we’ll plan on it again. “I like that 4 Peaks is the kind of place where I don’t have to worry about my child every second. Every time I look over, she’s having more fun than I am.” – a happy mother
Some examples of things to have your kids bring:
- water bottle
- hat & sunglasses
- hula hoop
- a good attitude
- the desire to make new friends

she let us know just how much she LOVES 4 Peaks Music Festival!
The 4 Peaks Music Festival is a wonderful place where you can have fun with your family and friends. I’ve been there every year and there is always new music, people and activities. I love the view at sundown when the weather is good, because it reminds me how great 4 Peaks truly is.
I always enjoy the food because it’s all local cuisine. I can always get a pepperoni and sausage handmade wood-fire pizza. I could eat 100 El Sancho tacos and my dad could eat 1,000. I can always count on the ice cream vendor to have a full line because of there amazing flavors.
I will never forget the year Brothers Comatose (my favorite bluegrass band) played. It was so fun to see them live and they even took a picture with me. The funny part is I discovered them at 4 peaks just years before along with another band called Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers, which is another favorite of mine.
The kid’s area is run by a nice lady named Kristin in a white tent near the shops. The kid’s area makes sure I never get bored with crafts, hula hoops and tattoos. Many of my friends come all the way from California to go to 4 Peaks, so it’s nice to see them. Hosted by Stacy Totland, it’s always on the summer solstice weekend. I can’t wait to see you here this year. You can always count on the fun music, good people and happy campers.”
