Slugs, slugs and more slugs!
It's the most unusual Northwest Festival ever - a celebration of slugs. Learn to see the world through a slug's perspective, craft and wear your own tentacles to become a slug, participate in human slug races, and more!
Why do we have this zaniest of festivals? Well, if you've ever hiked a Northwest forest, you'll know our slugs are among the biggest and best - especially the yellow-green banana slug. But they're also vital to our ecosystem, breaking down organic matter and returning it to the forest floor, where it becomes food for our beautiful plants and trees. Long live slugs!Going on a Slug Hunt
Remember - Wild Drive tours give you free admission to Slug Fest and core area animals, plus the chance to see elk, mountain goats and more from your air-conditioned car! Book now, spots limited.Wild Drive
