DuneFest 2018 - Starting Wednesday July 25

It's the most fun a family can have in the sand!

DuneFest, held in the fabulous National Forest Dunes Recreations area of Winchester Bay, is jam-packed with exciting activities for all skill and age ranges with plenty of drag racing, motocross track, helicopter rides, monster truck rides, tire toss, treasure hunt, and other activities all weekend long... there is something for everyone! This year it will be July 25 though July 29.

DuneFest is brought to you by the Reedsport/Winchester Bay Chamber of Commerce. Winchester Bay is the center of the fabulous Dunes Recreations area and is therefore, the ATV dunebuggy capital of the Pacific coast!

For those who do not own an ATV, there are several vendors who rent dunebuggy quads in the area. The professional employees take the time to train novices in their safe use so that anyone can explore these amazing dunes and beaches like an expert.

If you are in the market for OEM or after market accessories, great food, riding apparel, shirts, sweaters, boots, shoes or helmets, then it’s time for a stroll down  Vendor Row!

Watch a laser light show shoot across the dunes at night while rocking to a DJ Barry Macguire on Thursday night.  Friday night join country rock band Jimmy Bobby Band and Saturday enjoy TLS Journey.  If permitted by the Forest Service, a  bonfire on Saturday night.

Join us for our annual Night Ride.  Meet at the Mainstage on, Friday night for a ride led by Nascar driver Greg Biffle and Saturday for a ride led by Monster Energy Baja racer Casey Currie at 8:30pm!
