Tickets are on sale, and they're going like hot cakes. It's no surprise, considering the spread that Feast Portland is putting on from 18 - 21 September. 

 

The Culinary Events

On Thursday Feast Portland will be setting off with an ode to the gourmet sandwich with Widmer Brother’s Brewing Sandwich Invitational presented by Dave’s Killer Bread, where chefs will battle it out to create the best bread-surrounded feast. Judges will include those who attends and a panel of esteemed judges, including Rob and Kurt Widmer, Josh Ozersky, Karen Brooks, and last year’s winner, Chef David Kriefels. 

Feast’s showcase of Oregon’s very best food and drink spans not one, but two days at the Oregon Bounty Grand Tasting presented by Alaska Airlines on Friday and Saturday afternoon in Downtown Portland’s Pioneer Courthouse Square, featuring 38 wineries, 18 breweries, more than 20 artisans and chefs from across the state, and curated offerings from Bon Appétit, Travel Oregon and more. On the evening of Saturday, 20 September, Oregonian Media Group High Comfort at The Nines will push comfort food way out of its comfort zone with a level of decadence only America’s best chefs could achieve.

At Feast Portland’s almost sold-out new Sunday event, Tillamook Brunch Village, chefs from Oregon and around the country will build their “towns” of bacon, eggs, pastries, and everything else that makes brunch Portland’s favorite meal. While chowing down bites from Franklin BBQ (Austin, TX), Black Seed Bagels (New York, NY), EggSlut (Los Angeles, CA), Duff Goldman (Los Angeles, CA), Butcher & Bee (Charleston, SC), as well as Portland’s best local brunch spots, guests can cheer on their favorite local bartenders at Feast’s first ever Brunch Brawl aka  “I Woke Up Like This” Cocktail Competition on the KitchenAid Main Stage. 

Feast Portland’s Dinner Series events are nearly all sold out, with only tickets available for KitchenCru Dinner Series: Dessert for Dinner featuring five renowned pastry chefs from Portland and beyond. 

The festival has just two Hands On Classes remaining: Explore the thrill of pure flavor with Juicy Juice as Gwen Severson from PortlandJuice Company demonstrates how to mix ingredients to create healthy and delectable concoctions, or get your hands sticky making artisanal sodas as Ross Hunsinger of Atlas Sodaworks explores the flavors and soda-making process in Soda Jerk

Charity

Not only is Feast Portugal a wonderful culinary event, but it is also a philanthropist's dream. Last year, the festival was able to donate $52,165 to their Share Our Strength and Partners For A Hunger-Free Oregon. This year proceeds will go towards...

No Kid Hungry is ending childhood hunger in America by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need, every day. No Kid Hungry connects kids in need to effective nutrition programs like school breakfast and summer meals and teaches low-income families to cook healthy, affordable meals. This work is accomplished through the No Kid Hungry network, made up of private citizens, public officials, nonprofits, business leaders and others providing innovative hunger solutions in their communities. Since the campaign’s launch, No Kid Hungry and its partners have connected kids struggling with hunger with more than 107 million additional meals. 

Partners for a Hunger-Free Oregon envisions an Oregon where everyone is healthy and thriving, with access to affordable, nutritious and culturally appropriate food. To bring that vision into reality, the organization raises awareness about hunger, connecting people to nutrition programs and advocating for systemic changes that end hunger before it begins. Become a Partner to learn, connect, and advocate for a hunger-free Oregon.
