Tokeland & North Cove, tucked away on a tiny strip of land where the ocean meets the Willapa Bay, an artist community lives and thrives. Less than 200 people call Tokeland and North Cove home and over 30% of residents here are professional artists!
Every year, participating artists welcome the public into their studios and outdoors on the grounds of the Tokeland Hotel & Restaurant. Visitors enjoy art demonstrations to learn about the artist’s craft, ask questions and ultimately purchase these one of kind objects inspired by this peninsula’s beautiful surroundings. The variety of art and mediums is expansive including pottery, photography, fiber & weaving, blacksmith, custom jewelry, metal art, driftwood art, wood & stone carving, nautical art & custom knots, blown glassware, textural pop art and more!
The first Tokeland parade was in 1976 when neighbors came together to celebrate our country's independence. The family picnic and field games, like the famous sack race and water balloon toss, were added a few years later making the Saturday closest to the 4th of July holiday a date to remember.
Everyone is welcome to participate in the Tokeland parade.

See you in Tokeland for this old-time celebration and family friendly event!
Chainsaws, beer garden and live music – sounds like a perfect summer day, what could be better? How about adding a handmade art festival? Yes! Even better. What started over 15 years about as an annual carver party, Jeffro Uitto, a popular local wood artist & carver, now hosts a giant party that everyone is invited to. Woodfest has a local friendly vibe that extends to two days of live music, food, local and visiting arts and yes, live chainsaw carving by some of the most talented carvers in the region.
This event has grown in popularity and traffic congestion can be an issue, therefore parking at the Tokeland Hotel is reserved for guests and handicap visitors only. Please use the Shoalwater Bay Casino shuttle to/from the event as regular parking is limited.
Let the holiday shopping season begin with a spooky play on the beloved movie Nightmare Before Christmas!!
