Gratefull Dead Fare Thee Well

Come join us on beautiful and funky Vashon Island, at the one and only Open Space for Arts & Community, on July 3, 4 and 5 - to celebrate, to dance, and to party one last time with the Grateful Dead.

What’s best for a Dead show?

Room to dance... room to hang out... space outside to listen... space inside to watch... a friendly, easy family space - exactly what Open Space offers.

Our Grand Hall’s 17 LED foot projection screen and world class sound system will make you feel like you are right there watching - and Vashon’s biggest dance floor has room for hundreds to dance.

In the outdoor meadow, there will be areas for kids to play and all to roam. Food trucks, including the awesome Orca Eats, and a beer garden will provide sustenance, so you can dance for hours and have energy for more.
In addition to the live broadcasts, we have more ways for folks of all ages to enjoy the weekend:
On Friday night July 3rd, after the Dead concert, stay and enjoy the musical stylings of Rumor Has It – a fun local jam band.

On Saturday the 4th, Vashon has a world-class fireworks show over Quartermaster Harbor, just a short 10 minute drive from Open Space.

On Sunday afternoon July 5th, before the Dead, we will be serenaded by Vashon’s one and only Rock Island String Kollective – a group of musicians ranging from 8-80 jamming out to all the Mother McRee’s Uptown Jug Champions classics.

Whether you’ve seen 100 Dead shows or this is your first one – this is the last hurrah. Join us to celebrate what has been such a huge part of so many people’s lives - in a place and style fitting for the occasion.
