” I absolutely love this festival. Super awesome fun installations and great fun! Attendees wear awesome costumes also. One guy was a full-blown robot! Super magic times. Do yourself a favor and go as many nights as you can! Bring fun lights to wear. See you there, folks!” ~Todd M
THE LIGHT OF STARS
Welcome to the 8th annual PDXWLF! Imagine a world where “Stars rip through nebulas like baseballs through cotton candy, and galaxies squeeze past black holes to have billions of stars scattered into the darkness like multicolored Christmas lights.” ~Chris Herring, Creative Director PDXWLF
That is just a part of the vision for the 2023 festival. Learn about our 2023 Theme: The Light of Stars
