Please join with us in making Portland sparkle and shimmer for our fourth year.

PDXWLF is an annual outdoor winter art festival that will feature interactive light-based art installations throughout Portland the 7-9th of February, 2019. We invite artists and creators of all types to submit ideas for outdoor-ready light-art installations that engage, surprise and delight audience members of all ages. Portland Winter Light Festival builds community by bringing cutting edge light art and technology to diverse audiences, free of charge, while invigorating the City of Portland in February. We intend to change the way that people engage with Portland during the winter by using the power of light art to transform the city-scape.

This year’s theme is: Forward

The road to evolution is forward.

We live in a world where technology, ideas and creativity are our propellants to the future.

Where our hope and dreams are pushing us ahead at an ever accelerating rate.

We've turned magic to science.

Fire to psychics.

Stone into spires and hope to reality

It’s all in the palm of your hands.

You are the future.

You have the power to create a better world.

All you need to do is open your mind and show us its secrets.

Dream bigger, dream brighter and show us our tomorrow today!
