Slug Fest

May the slime be with you!

Slip, slide and slime at this truly Northwest festival - a celebration of slugs. Take a tentacled tram, make slug crafts and slide down a soapy track to victory in our Human Slug Race! Meet critters up close at Trailside Encounters, take selfies as a flower and find our giant slug statue to play on.

It's all about decomposition...

Why do we have this zaniest of festivals? Well, if you've ever hiked a Northwest forest, you'll know our slugs are among the biggest and best - especially the yellow-green banana slug. But they're also vital to our ecosystem, breaking down organic matter and returning it to the forest floor, where it becomes food for our beautiful plants and trees. 

Long live slugs!
