Feast Portland: A Celebration of Oregon Bounty ranks as one of the premier food and drink festivals in the Pacific Northwest.
Founded in 2012 by Mike Thelin and Carrie Welch, the sixth annual Feast Portland will showcase local culinary talent and Pacific Northwest ingredients alongside internationally recognized chefs, culinary professionals and industry leaders.
Net proceeds from the lineup of more than 30 events go to help fight childhood hunger in Oregon and around the country through Partners for a Hunger-Free Oregon and Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry® campaign.
Feast Portland begins Sept. 14 with the Sandwich Invitational showdown at the RoseQuarter Commons with 14 of the best chefs in the country who are ready to stuff any idea possible between two slices of bread – even when the idea of “bread” is left to wild interpretation.
On Friday, Sept. 15 and Saturday, Sept. 16, there is Feast Portland’s Grand Tasting, the festival’s largest tasting event featuring more than 80 food and drink vendors at Pioneer Courthouse Square.

Participating wineries include Canoe Ridge Vineyard, Primarius, Sokol Blosser, Ste Michelle Wine Estates, Unconditional by Battle Creek Cellars, the Washington State Wine Commission and Waterbrook.
