Registration is required for overnight camping, please register on Eventbrite here:
If you are coming just for the day — to see the art, attend a workshop, or work on a project in the Creativity Lab — no registration is required. However we will have a tip jar out if you want to help pay for supplies.
Everything in the ball park is within walking distance, however the town of Skykomish is one mile East on Highway 2. As such driving, carpooling, and/or bringing a bike is recommended. Skykomish is a small town, and most places are within walking distance of each other. Click here for an interactive map with key locations of interest for the Sky Art Week.
Skykomish is 65 miles Northeast of Seattle on Highway 2, and just 16 miles West of Steven’s Pass.
- From Seattle: Take WA-520 E to I-405 N, then WA-522 E until you get to Monroe, where you will turn onto US-2 E/U.S. Rte 2 E. Monroe is the last large town on the way, with a Fred Meyer’s, a Lowe’s, and a Safeway. From Monroe, take US 2 E another 45 minute drive to Skykomish. The drive without stops or traffic is about 1 hour and 20 minutes.
- Getting to Electric Sky at the Skykomish Ball Park: From Skykomish, continue east on highway Us-2 for 1 mile, until you see a sign that says Beckler Road on your right. The dirt road immediately after this sign on the right is the City Ball Park Road. Turn right onto this road. Please drive slowly on the dirt road and around the ball park.
- Bus: There is an Amtrak bus that goes to Skykomish once a day, leaving at 8:50am and arriving at 11:15am. It returns every day leaving Skykomish at 2:15pm and arriving in Seattle at 4:45pm. Learn more and buy tickets here: http://tickets.amtrak.com/itd/amtrak
