SOAK* - Portland Regional EventEdit
July 10-13, Tidewater Falls, OR
- SOAK: 10th Anniversary ::
SOAK* is a multi-day interactive arts festival and camping event in Oregon with sprawling lawns, swimming hole, and wooded trails. This is a place to meet your fellow Portland 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 effigy burns.
Tidewater Falls offers a recently expanded event space with two large upper fields and adjacent vehicle accessible campsites nestled in the forest near the Oregon Coast as well as a lower event space featuring grassy knoll and terrace camping, swimming hole, fire pit, and a stage for music and performances. The recent event site expansion now includes a loop increasing vehicle accessibility to camps and is great for small Art Cars and Mutant Vehicles. Tidewater Falls is approximately 2.5 hours from Portland and is accessed by a private road off Highway 34 (this is the same event location as 2011).
