What’s daVinci Days?

It’s an outrageously creative 3 day festival in Corvallis, Oregon that celebrates all things kinetic. Drawing more than 20,000 attendees, it’s the country’s longest running festival of its kind. The magic of the weekend is that everyone gets to participate in the exploration of art, science, and technology. From fanciful and functional human-powered kinetic sculptures to whimsical community art installations to Grammy Award winning music to cutting edge research presentations from Oregon State University. It’s a festival for the senses that you need to experience.

With help from more than 150 community partners and 1,000 volunteers, da Vinci Days showcases innovative artists, engineers, teachers, community organizations, and individuals. The 19th annual festival celebrates all things kinetic with a theme of Motion & Commotion on July 20-22, 2007.

    I just wanted to say that I had a chance to go to da vinci days for the first time this year and it was tremendous. The music was excellent (pink martini was incredible) and the entire atmosphere was just great. If any one out there is considering going to this event I would highly recommend it.
