SOAK* is a multi-day interactive arts festival and camping event in Oregon with lush meadows, creek for swimming, 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, live music, theme camps, workshops, Friday night burn and Saturday night main effigy burn.
New location for 2012. Prindel Creek Farm offers a large open field with adjacent paths and smaller camp sites nestled in the forest near Tidewater, Oregon. This is a new event site, however the location is not far from where SOAK* 2011 took place.
Center camp features a stage for music and performances, and a covered pavilion with benches for folks to gather. There are two public designated fire pits. As always, open ground camp fires are not permitted.
Swimming. There's a freshwater creek with a small waterfall that runs along the site which will give people a chance to cool off.
Getting there. Prindel Creek Farm is approximately 2.5 hours from Portland with pavement up to the main gate near the main field. So we will be able to accommodate Art Cars and Mutant Vehicles this year. The main field is also larger so we'll have more room for parking near the camp site. As in past years we'll likely need to prohibit super-size RVs and trailers to make sure there's room for everyone, and we do expect higher attendance this year.
Stay up-to-date, as ongoing event details are posted:
This event is entirely volunteer run. Your participation, volunteering or performance is the best way to get involved.
