Portland Winter Light Festival

Portland Winter Light Festival

Brighten up your winter with glowing sculptures and thousands of twinkling lights. Instead of one location, this year the light festival will be spread out across downtown Portland. For a few nights each year, the Portland Winter Light Festival transforms the City of Roses into a city of lights. Designed to bring light to the wintry darkness, this free festival returns every winter season with imaginative works that combine light and technology to create interactive experiences. The fifth iteration of the Portland Winter Light Festival in 2020 showcased 114 illuminated art installations, dozens of performances and live events, educational programming and mesmerizing kinetic fire sculptures throughout the city. The festival’s 150,000 attendees enjoyed a silent disco, an illuminated nighttime bike ride and lantern parade, live ice carving, dance performances and more.

In 2024, repeating the success of the previous year’s festival format, organizers have created a decentralized footprint, allowing attendees more space and time to view installations and encouraging people to embrace the spirit of discovery and choose their own paths to explore the installations.
