The Portland Winter Light Festival is committed to free, accessible art for all.
In 2017, the Portland Winter Light Festival hosted over 40,000 attendees and transformed our city into a tapestry of light and color during the darkest time of the year. The festival remains 100% FREE to the public in 2018; to honor this dream, we need your help!
As a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, our success is completely dependent on the generous support of our community. Your donation is tax deductible, and helps ensure that the festival will continue to thrill and inspire.
