What is SOAK*?
SOAK* is the Regional Burning Man Gathering for Portland and Western Oregon. SOAK* is a multi-day interactive arts festival and family reunion-style camping event in Oregon with sprawling grassy lawns, pituresque river canyons, colorful camps, and diverse activities. This is a place to meet your fellow Burners and get a taste of Burning Man Northwest style. SOAK* features participation, fire performances, art, DJs and live music, a pageant, theme camps, workshops, Portland Temple and Ceremonial Burnable Sculptures. Anyone can participate.
We Want Art, Theme Camps, Mutant Vehicles, and Fire Performance at SOAK*2017!
SOAK attendees have brought a large and diverse collection of art, mutant vehicles and fire performances to prior events. Whether they are bringing scale-model zooplankton, sound-blasting bumblebees, or fire-cracking bullwhips, the inventiveness of our attendees is a large part of what makes SOAK amazing!
We need to know about these these items in advance, so we can make sure the appropriate space is reserved onsite and for participant safety. Please investigate the sections below if you are:
- Bringing an art project
- Leading a theme camp
- Bringing a mutant vehicle
- Performing with fire
- Disability Solutions
SOAK is 100% volunteer-run, and couldn’t function without hundreds of hard-working volunteers like you!
How were you planning on spending your time at SOAK*2017: Superstition? Sweeping up broken mirrors and spilled salt, weaving dream catchers, sewing voodoo dolls, making sage smudges for cleansing your theme camp, fluffing auras, balancing chakras?
How about volunteering with some of the people who make the magic happen? Virtually every team at SOAK is looking for volunteers, so there’s likely to be a role for you, whatever your interests. Volunteering gives you an opportunity to interact with your fellow participants and contribute towards making SOAK a fabulous experience!
