Lime Kiln Point State Park

Orca Sing is an annual event where people gather for an evening of music at Lime Kiln Point State Park to honor the Southern Resident orcas.  

The Seattle’s City Cantabile Choir will perform while we enjoy a beautiful evening at the park. We will also celebrate Washington State Parks and Orca Awareness Month. While there is no guarantee, we hope that the orcas will grace us with a pass-by. The event is free and open to the public. Participants are encouraged to bring a picnic to enjoy the beauty of Lime Kiln. A Discovery Pass is required for parking at the State Park and can be purchased through the Lime Kiln Point State Park Interpretive Center. Carpooling is encouraged as parking is limited.
