Please note that these directions were written by the Beloved team.  The information about the offsite Box Office does not apply to Illumination.  But note that the entrance to the site is a VERY SHARP right turn and it will probably be best to go past it, turn around, and approach it from the west.

 

If you are coming from the south, we highly recommend stopping to refuel and for a snack at our favorite solar powered Biofuels station, SeQuential Biofuels, located just off of I-5 in Eugene at 86714 McVay Highway. It is the first all-biofuel and biofuel-blend fueling station in the nation. They offer biofuel and biofuel blends for every vehicle with no conversion required.

 

We highly encourage everyone to carpool.
