CHOMP! is hosted by King County Parks and produced by Artist Home, which also produces the Timber! Outdoor Music Festival at King County’s Tolt-MacDonald Park and Campground in Carnation, Timbrrr! Winter Festival in Leavenworth, and Doe Bay Fest on Orcas Island. Artist Home integrates unique natural settings into the event experience while uniting music, community, and nature.
