Share this event:

The 7th ANNUAL SH'BANG explodes this year with outlandish shenanigans at the Lookout Arts Quarry near Bellingham, WA. September 5th, 6th, and 7th will yield eye-popping off-road soapbox derby action, an international plethora of live bands, vaudeville, circus, sideshow, comedy, burlesque, camping, swimming, dancing, parades, clay wrestling, creative kids' zone, zip line, interactive theme camps, whimsical workshops, rambunctious carnival games, and buckets of extras we can't mention on the internet. (Come closer, we can whisper them in your ears!) ALL AGES! NO DOGS (sorry)!

(FULL LINEUP, etc available at, schedule at
This year's lineup includes 27 LIVE BANDS and DJs, some of which are:
Br'er Rabbit, Yogoman Burning Band, Deakin Hicks, MrMoo, The Sky Colony, JustinCredible Sideshow, Skablins, Inflammable Circus, Shovelman, Taillour, The Murtles, Yippee Ki-Yay Cabaret, Bee Bones, PLY HTCHT, Bemya Nymh b'ARBORoja, Emergency Circus, Months of Indecision, + more!

Super Dooper Early Bird Tickets will be an outrageously cheap $35 until August 22nd! That is a Full Weekend Pass, including camping! Availability will be limited, and deadline at the stroke of midnight, after which the advanced Full Weekend Pass will be $50. Children under 10 are FREE with an adult, and Youth Passes are just $10 in advance for the whole weekend.

Vehicle passes will be $15 ($25 oversize vehicles, 18'+) sold in advance (and $20/30 on day-of). We highly encourage carpooling, it's more cheaper and more fun. If you bring four people in a single vehicle, then parking is FREE! (or just $10 for oversize). Visit for a link to our rideshare board.

Of course, riding your bicycle, unicycle, walking, hitchhiking, or bouncing in on your pogo-stick means you don't have to pay for parking. Bikepool with your crew!

We recommend you register your vehicle in advance as space is limited and it helps us stay a little more sane. Weekend car camping spots are especially sought after and limited, if this is something you want you must arrive by 4pm Friday and be able to stay until 2pm Sunday with no in/out privileges. Water, sewer, and electrical hook-ups are not available. Vehicle pass costs are the same for Full Weekend attendees and Day Attendees alike.
