Community Picnic in the Park

July 23, 2022

Dust off your picnic blanket and beach chairs and join us Saturday, July 23 from 1:00 – 9:00 PM at East Cranberry Lake for the Community Picnic in the Park!

To celebrate Deception Pass State Park’s 100th Anniversary, we are bringing back a tradition older than the park itself: a community picnic. In 1922, the annual picnic was even the location of the park’s original dedication. We will celebrate our 100th anniversary in much the same way with music, entertainment, food, local artisans, and a beer garden.

Worried about parking? Bellair Charters will be providing shuttle service between the picnic at East Cranberry Lake, North Beach, West Beach, and Cornet Bay Marina.

We need volunteers to make this event happen, so head over to our signup page. All volunteers will receive a voucher for a 2022 Deception Pass Tours boat tour. Volunteers over 21 will receive a free voucher for the Centennial Beer Garden good for 1 beer of your choice, and volunteers under 21 will receive a voucher for a free ice cream at the Lake Store at Cranberry Lake Campground!
