The Corvallis Area

Corvallis is located in the heart of the Willamette Valley, and is reputedly the #2 Friendliest College Town in the U.S. It is one of the most bike-friendly and sustainable cities in the country, offering diverse cultural opportunities without the bustle of a big urban center.

Land Acknowledgement

We gather for Zimfest 2023 on the ancestral homelands of the Champinefu band of the Kalapuya. We acknowledge the indigenous communities that originated here and who have journeyed to other locations via forced displacement. We recognize that, without them, we would not have the opportunity to come to gather at Oregon State University. We extend our deepest respect and gratitude to them.
