The Eureka Institute is committed to bringing Sandpoint SummerFest to the Eureka Center for many years to come.  This is our most important fundraising event of the year and Its continued success depends on the respect of our rules, guidelines below and stewardship of the land.
FRONT GATE/SCHEDULE: Gate opens Friday at 2:00pm and Saturday at 11:00am.

Music starts at 4:00pm on Friday, 9:00am on Saturday. Movement Class is held at 10:00am.
Sandpoint SummerFest happens at The Eureka Center, located at 6162 Eureka Road in Sagle, Idaho. 


From either the north or south, take Highway 95 to Sagle Road, which is around 6 miles south of Sandpoint. Look for signs directing you to Garfield Bay. Then, head east on Sagle Road for 11 miles, ensuring to bear left at the two Y intersections along the way. Once you reach Eureka Road on the left, continue straight (as Sagle Road veers right). After just 50 yards on Eureka Road, you'll find our driveway on the left, marked with the address 6162 on the mailbox.

CAMP STOVES:  No camp stoves are allowed during the summer during fire season. There will be plenty of hot food available, provided by Eichardt’s, a local eatery and pub and please feel free to bring as much cold and pre-cooked food as you like.

CAMPING: There will be camping spaces provided for both those who wish to camp near their car and those who wish the solitude of the meadow for tent camping. If you are planning on bringing a RV, School Bus, or any other RV-type vehicle it’s best to call before the event so we can reserve a space for you.

Otherwise you will be questioned at the gate and risk the possibility of your keys being taken until morning. Drinking and driving will not be tolerated.
