VERY few tickets are left... I probably should have posted something sooner.

Volunteer Opportunities What Remain:

When: July 10 - 13, 2014
Tidewater Falls
Tidewater, Oregon

The Decadent Decathlon
10th Anniversary Edition

It's time to toast our tenth year, as we raise our cups and prepare for even bigger challenges looking forward. You’ve been training, but are you READY? The competition looks rather elegant, SET. Team Unicorn you look smashing... GO! No time now! Running from camp to camp with your playa finest flowing behind, will you make it? Don't spill that drink. Where's the finish line anyway, oh wait, is that cake? I think you've set a new record. I hear the award ceremony is not to be missed, proceed to the podium and accept your trophy. Darling, you've just won SOAK.


SOAK* is a multi-day interactive arts festival and camping event in Oregon with sprawling lawns, swimming hole, and wooded trails. This is a place to meet your fellow Portland Burners and get a taste of Burning Man Northwest style. SOAK* features participation, live performances, art and engineering, self expression, music, a pageant, theme camps, workshops, and the Portland Temple.

Tidewater Falls offers a recently expanded event space with two large upper fields and adjacent vehicle accessible campsites nestled in the forest near the Oregon Coast as well as a lower event space featuring grassy knoll and terrace camping, swimming hole, fire pit, and a stage for music and performances. The recent event site expansion now includes a loop increasing vehicle accessibility to camps and is great for small Art Cars and Mutant Vehicles. Tidewater Falls is approximately 2.5 hours from Portland and is accessed by a private road off Highway 34 (this is the same event location as 2011).
