The 2024 Theme Unveiled
“What glows under pressure”

The 9th festival launches in February, and the PDXWLF crew is hard at work, carefully selecting artists and matching them to locations throughout the city. Watch for exclusive sneak peeks as we unveil all the exciting details! Make sure you’re in the loop by joining our mailing list and dust off your illuminated costumes; you’re going to need them. Save the date: February 2nd to 10th, 2024

Join the journey to the abyss; light your space
with our festival colors in February!


Volunteering with PDXWLF means seeing the art before everything is opened to the public, meeting the artists and learning about what they create, trading funny festival experience stories, and making great connections within the local arts community.


This free-for-all festival is supported annually by generous donors like you. Join our Lumen’s Circle, ask your company to become a corporate sponsor, and check if your company has a matching donation program! We literally cannot do this without you!


Last February was a lively gathering of light enthusiasts, showcasing the joyful attendees. Our featured gallery underscores that the festival welcomes all, capturing genuine wonder and happiness.
