Mission Statement

To encourage the Portland community to come together in a city-wide celebration of the arts, the Portland Winter Light Festival transforms the city into a tapestry of light, color, artistry, performance, and imagination, illuminating the Portland winter cityscape. The festival attracts premier artists who bring the city to life during a time of year when it is often quiet. This all-ages event brings the family together to celebrate the spirit of winter and warmth of community. This cutting-edge festival is the first of its kind in Portland and the inaugural year featured over one dozen artists and attracted thousands of visitors to the waterfront during what is typically the quietest time of the year.


The Portland Winter Light Festival, powered by PGE renewable energy and produced by the Willamette Light Brigade, is a free, all-ages community wide celebration illuminating the city's public spaces with a series of light-based art installations, projections, performances, and activities that expand art and technology innovations in our region.

It is so exciting to be a part of this cutting-edge event in it's formative year! The staff are wildly creative and dedicated to bringing the community together in this city-wide celebration of the arts. Being a part of the first annual Portland Winter Light Festival will definitely be something I will be proud to have helped to create in many years to come!!
