Not only is summer known as the perfect time to go on vacation with the whole family, but it is also the time of year for music festivals.

Our vacation rentals on the shore of Lake Pend Oreille are the perfect home base for anyone looking to experience the annual summer concert series.

What to Know about the Festival

Four decades ago, the Festival at Sandpoint was started to provide an incredible music experience and cultivate culture and ethnic diversity by putting on a wide range of concerts. This annual event takes over War Memorial Field on Ontario Street in Sandpoint for two weeks every summer. Lineups have been known to include national acts like Train, REO Speedwagon, and more. Check the site for the most up-to-date information as acts for the year are announced.

Tickets for individual shows can be purchased online, which will go on sale as headliners are announced. Season passes are available every year starting in October, but they are known to sell out quickly. All purchases are final.

Don’t worry about going hungry during your concert-going experience. There are both food vendors and a full-service bar found on the festival grounds. This is a cashless venue, so plan accordingly. You can also bring your own food and drink as long as they are not in hard-shell coolers. Read the festival policy for more information on other prohibited items and important information.
