Join us for a Rainforest Fantasy! A costume party honoring our priceless and endangered rainforests with live music and dancing, entertainment, a light buffet, and a silent auction full of wondrous "artifacts".

Beer, cider, and non-alcoholic drinks will be available for purchase at the Tree of Life Tavern. A reusable glass mug, or colorful Sillipint™ pint glass with event logo is included with your ticket.

Attire and About the Rainforest Theme:
Join our world rainforest costume theme, or wear formal wear. Costumes admired, not required.

Rainforests are found all over the world and are defined as woodlands with an annual rainfall of at least 100 inches.

Often we first think of the tropical rainforests, such as the Amazon, the Congo, or Costa Rica, but temperate rainforests are found in many places, including our own Pacific Northwest, Britain, Chile, Japan, and Australia.

Magical creatures and denizens of the rainforest will mingle at this global forest-influenced event. Take your costume inspiration from the plants, trees, colorful flora, reptiles, amphibians, fish, birds, insects, and mammals of this beautiful and critically endangered forests, or be a caretaker of the woods as a faerie, elf, or gnome. There may also be dark forces among the light! Additional costume ideas can be sourced from films, literature, pop culture, and the journeys of historic naturalists and explorers.
