North Beach Amphitheater
The Deception Pass Park and Washington State Parks Folk & Traditional Arts Program invites the public to the Annual American Roots Music Series/Arts in the Park at Deception Pass State Park.
Thanks to the generous support of Island County and Deception Pass Foundation, this year’s series has expanded from four to eight concerts on Saturday evenings from 7-8p.m. from July 6 through August 24 at the North Beach Amphitheater. The concerts feature musical traditions from across America with the occasional world musical tradition sprinkled in for good measure. Admission is FREE to the performances, though a Discover Pass is required for vehicle access to the park.
Come early for best seating!
