Once a Month, You Can Shoot a Bow and Arrow Under Black Lights in Tigard

Head out to Archers Afield and see what the War of the Roses might have looked like—in space.

The folks at Archers Afield (11945 SW Pacific Highway, Suite 121, Tigard) are serious about bows and arrows. They’ve been around since 1980, and they have instructors with decades of experience who specialize in compound bows, longbows, and Olympic recurve bows, which look like weapons out of Star Wars.

But they know how to have fun, too. Archers Afield has two date nights a month and two family nights, and they do birthday parties. And once a month, they really go nuts, firing up the disco ball, black lights and strobes for Cosmic Archery. The white spaces in targets glow, and you can shoot at balloons that they tack alongside them.

“People have had cosmic bowling forever,” says Archers Afield manager Kris Demeter.

Why not cosmic archery? If you can’t make the regular night every month ($20 per person), go ahead and book the cosmic room for a party ($30 per person). Every event includes a lesson where you learn some technique and a lot of safety.

Cosmic Archery is just getting rolling again after the pandemic. Head out to Archers Afield and see what the War of the Roses might have looked like—in space.
