Online registration will open on December 10, 2016 at 9 AM Pacific Standard Time.

Registration is required for all activities with an associated fee, including field trips, workshops, receptions, and keynotes. Some free events also require registration. Register early to ensure your place; our field trips and photography workshops fill rapidly. Registrations will be processed in the order in which they are received. You can also call 1-877-541-BIRD (2473) if you have questions.


If you have registered in advance, you can pick up your registration packets during Registration Desk open hours. The Registration Desk will be in front of the fireplace on the first floor of the Oregon Institute of Technology (OIT) College Union. Walk-ins can register for open activities, but you should expect limited availability. This is also where you can get answers to any questions about the festival and pick up maps of the local area.

Friday…………8:00 am – 6:00 pm

Saturday ……..8:00 am – 6:00 pm

Thursday and Friday participants only: If you cannot pick up your packet in advance, just meet at your first activity pick-up point and your leader will have your packet. It is important to pick up your packet to obtain a copy of your most recent schedule with updated room assignments, wristbands to allow you access into receptions you have purchased, and any premiums being given to registrants.


The Winter Wings Festival reserves the right to cancel any event for any reason. If we cancel an event because a key leader/presenter is unable to participate, you will receive a full refund for that event. If we cancel an event due to weather-related conditions, no refund will be issued. If an attendee cancels a registration to any event for any reason, the following policy will apply:

  • Cancellations made prior to January 31, 2017 will result in a full refund of fees paid less a $10 processing fee
  • Cancellations made on or after February 1, 2017 for weather-related conditions, other reasons, or for no-shows will not be refunded
