Concerts return to one of our favorite outdoor venues next month when the Waikiki Beach Concert Series kicks off June 10 inside Cape Disappointment State Park.
The evening concerts unfold near the shore of Waikiki Beach beneath the 151-year-old Cape Disappointment Lighthouse. It’s beautiful music in a breath-taking setting. And all you need to attend is a Discover Pass. Local tip: Bring a blanket and a beach chair for maximum comfort.
The concerts begin at 7 p.m. and are held every two weeks. Opening this year’s Waikiki Beach Concert Series on June 10 is 3 Fiddlers – 3 Traditions, playing “old dance tunes, whirling waltzes, happy polkas, groovy jogs, fiery reels and breathless hopsas.” Sounds great to us!
Waikiki Beach Concert Series
Future concerts include:
- June 24: Ranger and the Re-Arrangers
- July 8: Lincoln’s Beard
- July 22: Brownsmead Flats
- August 12: Misty Mamas
- August 26: Famille Leger
And for those who don’t know, Cape Disappointment State Park is about way more than just music (although the music is pretty good). We’re talking two lighthouses, eight miles of hiking trails, old-growth forest, saltwater marshes, surfing, kayaking, wildlife viewing … shall we continue? Sure: The Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center offers incredible views and whale watching opportunities, while the state park’s campground ranks among one of the best in the Pacific Northwest, featuring tent, RV and yurt camping and easy access to Benson Beach. You can even spend the night in the historic Lighthouse Keeper’s Residence.
It may be called Cape Disappointment, but there’s nothing disappointing about the summer of fun awaiting you in this spectacular state park!
