Oregon Eclipse is like nothing we’ve ever done before. It’s a bold endeavor that has been billions of years in the making and has brought together a unique global collaboration the likes of which has never been seen before.
The venue for this momentous occasion is in the center of the Ochoco National Forest at Big Summit Prairie. Super Duper Early Bird Experience Passes go onsale November 3 at 11:11am PST for $289 plus fees.
About the Event
Oregon Eclipse 2017 is a week long event beginning August 17 and ending August 23 at 3:33pm. 7 stages of music, multiple areas of workshops, yoga & dance classes, theatrical and circus performance, along with epic large-scale art installations will provide the backdrop to one of the most phenomenal experiences ever to be witnessed; a Total Solar Eclipse.
Camping and Parking
All participants wishing to park in or with their vehicle must purchase a Vehicle Pass with the exceptions of bicycles and motorcycles. The price for all vehicles including cars, trucks, buses, trailers or RV’s will be $100.
If you do not have a vehicle pass, we will have parking options that allow you to walk into the camping and event areas.
Camping is first come, first served and will generally be a self-directed proposition. Wide open stretches of campground mean that you may set up camp in anyway you see fit although we ask that you be mindful of your fellow eclipse chasers. We plan on releasing maps of the grounds before the event to support people making plans to camp with their friends.
Leave No Trace
Oregon Eclipse 2017 will take place at a wonderful site that has never been used as a event site before. All things that arrive on site will also have to depart when the event has concluded and we need your help. The event is imposing a strict Leave No Trace environment. This means taking only what you need to survive and leaving site with those things as well. Drop off stations will be noted to assist in the disposal process.
Buses and Transport
Since this is a destination event and people will be traveling from all over the world, we are making a concerted effort to provide support for transportation. Bus passes will be available for purchase from Portland, Bend, and Redmond airports multiple times per day. Reserve your passes early as all things are limited. 😉
Ready, Set, Camp
Options will be provided for those who wish to have their camps set up for them. Keep in mind, these are not glamour camping (or glamping), rather these options are simple sleeping set ups that come with bedding and power for gadgets and gizmos. Options can be found on the website.
Before the actual event, we will be offering Elemental Alchemy, a 5-day immersive available in several different subjects. Past courses have been centered around permaculture, yoga, visual art, as well as ritual & performance. Organic, home-cooked meals are included in the price of the course. More information will be available in the spring.
