Getting Here

Hello future Volcano worshipper! Follow these directions to find your way to 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. Please drive carefully and be safe.

→ The SHIFT gate entrance is located here: 45.301327, -120.809730

              This is the intersection of Twin Lakes Rd. and Michigan Lane in Grass Valley, Oregon.

 

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

  • *** This is an edited route, due to fires in the area. Hwy 97 is still closed ***
  • Take U.S. Route 197-S from I-84 at The Dalles – *this is your last chance for fuel!*
  • In Tygh Valley, take 216-E. THE ROAD BECOMES VERY STEEP AND WINDING! BE CAREFUL!
  • Eventually, Hwy 216 will start to straighten out. Keep your eyes open for Twin Lakes Rd. Make a right. (Super useful if you’ve downloaded the map for the area!)
  • Slow down to under 10 MPH!
  • Go past the Justesen ranch entrance to your right and you will soon arrive at the SHIFT entrance.

 

Taking 26-E from Portland (alternate route not suggested after dark):

  • Make sure roads are open due to recent fires in the area. Check Google Maps or InciWeb.
  • Follow the directions down and across the Deschutes River on Oregon Route 216. When you get close to the event site, do not turn onto Davis Ln. Continue on Oregon Route 216 a bit further until you turn right 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.

 

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 Michigan Ln. This is a gravel road and should be avoided due to dust concerns.
  • In Grass Valley, turn left onto Oregon Route 216, which will then head south. A sharp right turn in the road points you west (hello, Mt. Hood!)
  • Soon after, 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.

You may only enter the event from the main entrance on Twin Lakes Rd, close to where Michigan Ln meets Twin Lakes Rd.  Signs will direct you west to the Gate where you’ll be checked in and directed where to go! Have your tickets and ID on hand.
