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 is very limited, so please download or screenshot directions before 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.
Yes! This is a new entrance, just 400 yards further south on the same road.

 

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.
 

  • Take U.S. Route 97 South from I-84 at Biggs Junction – *this is your last chance for fuel!*
  • In Grass Valley, turn right 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.
  • Have your tickets and ID 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 Madras!*
  • 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 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.

Last-chance Supplies

Do not depend on these stops for your camping supplies; these are small-town operations that may not carry what you need. But they are great for food, beverages, and gifts!
