Portland is a vibrant town with an active burner community, home to some amazing theme camps, stilt walkers, art happenings, fire performance, music and other social gatherings. The Burning Man ethos really resonates here in the Willamette Valley.
We hold SOAK*, our annual regional burn, Burnout, the Portland Decompression, Woosday, town halls, Newbie Burner Picnics, and other events where you can meet, connect, and collaborate with other burners in the area. Subscribe to the Portland Announce and Portland Discussion Lists, and check out our web site to hear about upcoming events!
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.
