Deerfest is a annual celebratory event in Bright Falls that takes place between September 15th and September 18th.


Deerfest takes place between September 15-18. The events of Alan Wake take place on the year of the 68th annual Deerfest, while in Alan Wake 2, the events take place during the 81st annual Deerfest.

During the end of Alan Wake 2, while trying to stop Scratch, Alan reenters The Dark Place and encounters a false Deerfest, called the Eternal Deerfest, in which the entire event is centered around Alans newly released book Return. During the event, everyone wears deer masks similar to the ones the Cult of the Tree wear and make positive remarks towards Return.

The main event of Deerfest occurs at the "Bright Falls Southwest Fields".


Deerfest has many traditions that occur during the event. One of Deerfest's traditions is to have candles lit in the church every night in September until Deerfest ends.


  • On Pat Maine's radio show it is mentioned that a rival town celebrates Moosefest. Last year's Moosefest was the most popular event in the region, set by the town of Watery. Bright Falls seems quite keen to attract more visitors to this year's Deerfest to break that record.
