Bon Appétit presents Feast Portland: A Celebration of Oregon Bounty to be taking place mid-September. With a schedule of more than 40 events around Portland, attendees will feast to fight childhood hunger and celebrate the state. Net proceeds from the festival will be donated to Partners for a Hunger-Free Oregon and Share Our Strength.
“Feast Portland was created to capture the current energy and enthusiasm that’s driving America’s food renaissance in one of its epicenters, Portland, Oregon. We’re excited for another year of showcasing regional culinary talent and Pacific Northwest bounty alongside internationally recognized chefs, industry leaders, influential media, and other top food-world influencers,” said festival co-founders Mike Thelin and Carrie Welch.
Feast Portland is maintaining its founding philosophy of facilitating collaborations between local chefs, some of the world’s most renowned names and some fresh faces with a unique food and drink lineup. Some of the large-scale tasting events include The Widmer Brothers Brewing Sandwich Invitational, The USA Pears Night Market presented by Snake River Farms, and Oregon Bounty Grand Tasting presented by Alaska Airlines. Other events include intimate sit-down dinners, hands-on classes, live culinary demonstrations, speakers and industry get-togethers.
