Living Locally: Feast Portland Happening This Week!
You guys! I’m so excited for Feast Portland! It begins in just two short days! This will be my second year attending Feast, so I know just how much fun it’s going to be. I’ll be up there for a full day of events on Friday,Saturday, and Sunday! If you want to follow along catch me over on Instagram, and be sure to check out the hashtag #FeastPDX to see everyone’s drool-worthy pictures.
I wrote a little bit more in depth about Feast Portland a couple of weeks ago, in case you are wondering what the heck I’m talking about right now. In a nutshell it’s a four day food festival that celebrates Oregon’s bounty. There is hands-on classes, dinner series, grand tastings, tasting panels, – something interesting for everyone, and the best part is that Feast Portland donates its net proceeds towards ending child hunger in Oregon (and beyond) through Partners for a hunger-free Oregon and Share our Strength.
Most of the events have already sold out, but here are a couple with tickets still available. If you’re looking for something fun to do this weekend I honestly can’t think of anything better!
This is the big opening event on Thursday night kicking off the Feast celebration! America’s top chefs will gather together in their quest for sandwich success. You can vote for the people’s choice winner, enjoy Craft Beers, local wines and creative cocktails.
If you can only make it to one event during Feast Portland I think this is the one you need to check out. The Oregon Bounty Grand Tasting offers a huge variety of tastings – you can eat and drink until your heart is content as well as watch live cooking demonstrations.
Remember, all events are 21 + and all inclusive! Can’t wait to see you there! 🙂
