Chinook Fest is Sept. 13-15 at Jim Sprick Community Park, 13680 Highway 410, near Chinook Pass west of Naches.
The festivals features more than 30 bands from around the Northwest. The festival debuted last year, the brainchild of musician Cody Beebe, who wanted to bring a fall music festival to the east side of the Cascades.
This year's festival features legendary harmonica player Lee Oskar from Seattle. Oskar has blended blues, jazz, funk, Latin and rock in his repertoire for more than 40 years.
Cody Beebe & The Crooks also perform at the festival, along with Kris Orlowski, Ben Union, Blake Noble, Yogoman Burning Band, Pole Cat, Aces Up, Not Amy, Daniel Kirkpatrick and the Bayonets, Robert Jon & the Wreck, Tango Alpha Tango, Daniel Blue, Mighty High, Jeff Crosby & The Refugees, Curtains for You, Kara Hesse, Eternal Fair, Daniel Ellsworth & The Great Lakes, Van Eps, The Higgs, Patrick Foster and The Locomotive, Edmund Wayne, MealFrog, Tim Snider, The Horde and the Harem, Cracker Factory, The Wicks & Bradford Loomis, Village, Fysah, Nick Foster and Susy Sun.
Never miss a local story.
Beebe said he chose the Chinook Pass site for the festival because it "boasts one of the most scenic drives in the state," even though it's only open from the end of May to late October each year.
