Hungry travelers can now purchase tickets to Feast Portland, a celebration of Oregon bounty slated for Sept. 20-23, 2012.
This first annual culinary festival celebrates the unmatched vibrancy of the Oregon food community by showcasing local culinary talent, from chefs and winemakers to farmers and distillers.
The Feast Portland schedule includes large-scale tasting events like the Sandwich Invitational, Oregon Bounty Marketplace in Pioneer Courthouse Square and Feast Portland Night Market, as well as intimate sit-down dinners, hands-on classes, live demonstrations and speakers.
