If you’re bringing any type of fire to SOAK, including camp stoves, please let us know!

Some reminders, straight from the Survival Guide:

NO FIREWORKS! For everyone’s safety and the protection of the land, personal fireworks and pyrotechnics are prohibited.

Fire: For the safety of the surrounding community and our participants, the following are prohibited: fire pits, fire barrels, chimineas, candles, tiki torches, charcoal BBQs, deep fryers, and oil lanterns. Vehicles will be searched; if these items are found, they will be held at Gate until arrangements have been made to properly dispose of them. Acceptable alternatives: propane patio heaters, elevated propane fire pits, and battery-powered lanterns.

All flames, including ground-elevated propane patio heaters and fire art, must be monitored at all times. Unattended flames will be extinguished and persons responsible may be ejected from the event. A charged fire extinguisher or minimum 5-gallon bucket of water must be kept within 10 feet of flames at all times.

Fire and fire art must be kept at least 25 feet from any structure, vehicle, fence, or tent. Fire spinning and performing is only allowed in designated areas, which will be physically marked at the event. Fire spinning is not allowed in tent camping areas.

Fire performers must pre-register. Visit http://soakpdx.com/fire-performance/ for more information and a link to the Fire Performance Registration form.
