Sasquatch! 2015


The best option when going to Sasquatch! is to stock up on camping-appropriate foods before you hit the road. This will keep costs down as you can bring food into the festival grounds. Pack a cooler with ice and perishable foods (plan on eating these first) and leave the rest for later in the weekend. If you have a camping stove be sure to bring that along, most Sasquatch!-goers survive on hot dogs and burgers.

While there are vendors at the campground and inside the festival, they are often over priced and not very healthy; the usual festival food. However, there are a decent number of options, cuisines ranging from Mexican to Thai, Indian, and BBQ.

Pop-up breakfast service is a popular, and often delicious, option at the Gorge campground as well. Festivalgoers may bring supplies to cook and sell things like breakfast burritos, hot coffee, or fresh cooked bacon that other campers can purchase. This is the perfect hangover food, a coveted thing in the middle of nowhere, so make sure to spot one of these guys early, they will definitely sell out by mid-morning.

If you are staying at a hotel/motel and have easier road access than campers, try one of these places listed below. They may not be a culinary pioneers or serve anything resembling gourmet, but they will provide hearty meals to sustain or replenish your days of dancing in the hot sun.

    If you're craving something other than hot dogs and PB&J, which by the end of Sasquatch, you will be, The SunFire Grill is just up the road in the town of Quincy. This place has a little bit of everything, so you are sure to find something to satisfy whatever cravings you have.

  • White Trail Farm Market

    • 10024 Road U Northwest

    White Trail Farm Market is a family-run store located about 15 minutes north of the Gorge. They open seasonally to offer only the freshest, locally produced, organic foods. This is a great option that is healthier than the usual festival food, and also a good place to stop if you realize you've forgotten anything. They also have a large selection of locally made gifts and crafts, should you feel so inclined to pick up a central Washington souvenir.

  • Tendrils Restaurant

    Part of the Cave B Inn and Spa complex (part hotel and spa, part winery), this is essentially the only restaurant near the festival, as other restaurants are thirty minutes away by car. The seasonal menu is characterized by fresh ingredients and a regional flare: herbs and produce grown on site, organic meats, and wine from the vineyard. Breakfast and lunch selections are all around $15 or less, while dinner entrees will be pricier. Patrons will enjoy sweeping views of the Gorge, and both indoor and outdoor seating is available. Tendrils is worth the visit if you decide to venture outside of the festival grounds.
