Nestled within the heart of the Olympic Peninsula, the Lake Leland Amphitheater near Quilcene, Washington, opens its doors this fall for a celestial celebration like no other: Moonfest 2023. Thanks to Jim Munn of Munn Bros Hood Canal Properties and Sheryl Wolover of Yoga Legends, attendees will be able to lose themselves in a blend of classic music, timeless cars, and the untouched beauty of the great outdoors.

Lake Leland Amphitheater – Nature's Own Concert Venue!
Set amidst 50 sprawling acres, the amphitheater boasts a unique setting with a gently sloping field that overlooks the serene Lake Leland. The artist-crafted stage stands at an impressive 28’x 30’ with a robust aluminum framework roof, accompanied by a 16’x 32’ lounge. Whether you're pitching a tent or arriving in an RV, the amphitheater has provisions for all, capable of hosting up to 1000 attendees with ample day parking.

Embrace the Vision!
Moonfest isn't just another festival; it's a vision. A vision to share a secluded, forested, lakefront haven where folks can come together, relish the great outdoors, groove to timeless classics, and appreciate vintage automobiles from a golden era.

Connect with Nature & Music
Moonfest promises an exhilarating two-day event for those 21 and above. With a strong emphasis on Rockin’ Blues and Rock N Roll, the festival also sprinkles in performances ranging from fire dancers to drum circles and belly dancers, ensuring every attendee's musical palate is catered to.

Not-For-Profit: For the Love of Arts
Moonfest is not just a festival; it's a movement. It operates as a NOT FOR PROFIT gathering, with proceeds supporting Neptunes Stage, a non-profit organization committed to promoting the performing arts.

Location Advantage
Situated a short hop away from Seattle, Tacoma, and Olympia, Lake Leland Amphitheater offers both seclusion and accessibility, making it the perfect weekend getaway destination.
