ONE DAY TO PICKATHON! Right now Pendarvis is buzzing with activity as all of our design teams are on site building out the Neighborhoods! TICKETS ARE SELLING OUT! RV and Car Camping just SOLD OUT! DO NOT DELAY! GET YOUR TICKETS NOW!!
After last year, we knew we need a big new solution for Parking at Pickathon, and that solution is here now: The Welcome Lot! It’s a large, open field about a half mile or so from Pickathon with views of the surrounding area and it’ll be your arrival point at the festival if you’re driving a car! Once you pull up, we’ll check you in and get you your festival wristband from the comfort of your car! You can drop your gear at the Gear Drop, check in with the Camp Host if you’re camping, and you’re all set. To get to Pickathon from the Welcome Lot, follow the trail to the festival (a bit over a half mile) or grab the Festival Bus that’ll drop you off at the Front Gate!
Here’s a look at the Trail from the Welcome Lot to Pickathon:
Camp in Luxury at Pickathon and basically GET PAID for it??? We know, we know, these Camp Poler deals keep getting crazier and crazier! Now thanks to the hard work of our sponsorship team and the generosity of our awesome festival sponsors, you can keep EVERYTHING from your camp! That means that when you buy a Camp Poler Package, you’ll get ALL THIS for free to keep after the festival:
-Poler Two Person Tent
-Two Poler Napsacks
-Poler Camera Cooler
-Two Next Adventure Sleeping Pads and Pillows
-Two Rumpl Sherpa Fleece Blankets
This totals almost $1200 in free gear, so you’ll be actually making money off of this deal??!?!
What Camp Poler means is that you can just pull into Pickathon without any camping gear, and we’ll have everything set up for you! You can glamp in style at the festival, AND you can have awesome gear to take around to the various Stages and Neighborhoods, like cozy blankets and sleeping bags and a handy cooler! It’s a win-win-win situation!
BIG NEWS TODAY! Pickathon will be the first festival EVER to use a Hydrogen Generator to power stages! Pickathon has always pioneered new ways to make music festivals environmentally sustainable, and this Zero Emissions Ethos will now be a key part of our work, along with our Zero Waste initiatives.
TRD USA’s Hydrogen Fuel Cell Generator is a one-of-a-kind generator! It uses hydrogen gas and oxygen from the surrounding air to power Pickathon stages and the ONLY emissions are air and a pure water mist! No noise either, no heat, no clouds of diesel gas. It’s an incredible, BRAND NEW technology developed by folks at Toyota that is a HUGE step forward towards clean, renewable energy!
Low Ticket Alert!! Some of our ticket types are very low right now, so don’t delay if you’ve been waiting to get tickets! Tickets available for now for Weekend Passes, Single Day Passes, Parking/Shuttle,

A cold drink in a Pickathon stainless steel reusable pint cup on a hot day. This is the quintessential Pickathon experience, and this year we’re proud to bring a whole host of Beverage options to the festival. From national brands to indie brewers to craft cocktails to homebrewed coffee to crisp cider to powerful spirits to bubbly kombucha and a brand new non-alcoholic drinks station, we’ve got a whole world of libations to tickle your fancy!
For Pickathon, sustainability is one of our core values. We’ve pioneered so many different ways for a music festival to be environmentally sustainable, but we also want Pickathon to keep our lives sustainable as well! Pickathon’s Wellness programs are a key way to provide sustainability programs for the mental, physical, and spiritual health of everyone going to Pickathon! From yoga, to runs, to hikes, to massages, to workshops, to relax zones, to fresh showers, Wellness is designed to keep you healthy and happy at Pickathon! The Refuge Neighborhood is the key to Wellness at Pickathon and it was one of the most popular new parts of the festival last year! A relaxing home in the forest where folks could decompress, get a massage, listen to sound therapy, and just take a moment away from the festival to re-center themselves. We’re so excited to expand the Refuge experience and bring back Yvonne Perez Emerson to design and build the space. Yvonne owns and operates Make & Mary, a Latina-run holistic herbalist shop in NE Portland that will delight your senses and calm your mind the moment you step through the door.
