Once again, February 1-3, the city will be lit up with art along the banks of the Willamette River near OMSI and in other various locations throughout the city. Artists and performers will showcase their talent for residents who have bundled up to embrace winter weather and the season of darkness, connecting with their city when most of us choose to stay indoors.

As the Portland Light Festival website states, “Inspired by light festivals around the globe, the Portland Winter Light Festival, a Willamette Light Brigade event, aims to counteract the city’s tendency to hibernate during the winter. The Portland Winter Light Festival is interactive, family-friendly, and designed to inspire adults and kids alike. Combining art and technology, people of all ages will find something to capture their spirit and fill their minds with imagination and wonder.”

This is a free, all ages event.
