Getting Here

Hello future Volcano worshipper! Follow these directions to find your way to Tectonic SHIFT Festival. Also included here is the list of last-chance supplies and the gate’s open hours.

Cell phone service can be limited on you way to SHIFT, so please download or screenshot directions before you leave home. Fire Safety starts when you leave home: NO CIGARETTE BUTTS OUT THE WINDOW! No idling on the side of the road. Never drive off-road, through tall grass, or on unpaved roads. Obey all speed limits and posted signs. Respect the locals. Please drive carefully and arrive safe. We can’t wait to see you!

→ The SHIFT gate entrance is located here: 45.298694, -120.809778.

 

If you will be arriving from the North, coming from Portland, Seattle, or the Gorge….


Sometimes your map offers to route you through HWY 26 (around Mt. Hood) or 197 (from the Gorge). Both of these routes take you to a dangerous and windy stretch of HWY 216 that we do NOT recommend you take! Please use the safer route below.
 

  • Head east from Portland down I-84. Take U.S. Route 97 South at Biggs Junction – *this is your last chance for fuel!*
  • After driving through Moro and Grass Valley, take a right turn onto Oregon Route 216, which will then head south. Soon, a sharp right turn in the road points you west (hello, Mt. Hood!)
  • Soon after that, you’ll make a left onto Twin Lakes Rd.
  • Slow down to under 10 MPH!
  • Go past the Justesen ranch entrance to your right, past the former event entrance, and you will soon arrive at the SHIFT entrance. You will be able to see our signs and the Gate crew.
  • Have your ID, tickets, and vax card/test results ready for check-in at Gate.

 

If you will be arriving from the South, coming from Central Oregon

  • *Your last chance for fuel is in Shaniko!*
  • Take U.S Route 97 North all the way to Grass Valley
    • Note: Google Maps may suggest you take a left at Michigan Ln, a couple miles south of Grass Valley. This is a gravel road and should be avoided due to concerns of excessive dust. Please respect the neighbors and do not use this stretch of road.
  • Right before you enter Grass Valley, turn left onto Oregon Route 216, which will then head back south.
  • Soon, a sharp right turn in the road points you west (hello, Mt. Hood!)
  • Soon after that, you’ll make a left onto Twin Lakes Rd.
  • Slow down to under 10 MPH!
  • Go past the Justesen ranch entrance to your right and you will soon arrive at the SHIFT entrance.
  • Go past the Justesen ranch entrance to your right, past the former event entrance, and you will soon arrive at the SHIFT entrance. You will be able to see our signs and the Gate crew.
