Slug Fest

Saturday, Jun 22, 2019 at 9:30am

Northwest Trek Wildlife Park
11610 Trek Drive East
Eatonville, WA 98328

Slip, slide, and slime at this truly Northwest festival! Free with admission.

It's the most unusual Northwest Festival ever - a celebration of slugs. Take a tentacled tram, make your own tentacles and slide down a soapy track to victory in our Human Slug Race! Meet critters up close, take selfies as a flower and find our giant slug statue to play on. Find as many slugs as you can in the Slug Tank. Or follow the story on our Snail Trail and appreciate nature at a slower pace.

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!
