Bon Appétit Presents Feast Portland returns for its seventh year, Thursday, September 13 – Sunday, September 16, 2018. The Pacific Northwest’s premier food and drink festival and leading national culinary event continues to bring together legendary and emerging culinary talent at more than 40 inventive dining experiences.
The 2018 schedule, packed with large main events, fun-sized events that are not too big and not too small, once-in-a-lifetime dinners, cutting-edge tasting panels, immersive classes and killer industry parties, will give guests countless ways to Feast across the four days.
New this year, top chefs will battle for the best decade in an 80s vs. 90s throwback throwdown to kick off the weekend. Friday evening’s Night Market introduces a ‘Ring of Fire’ theme covering a breadth of adventurous food and drink. Seven new Fun-Size events are creatively designed to be more action-packed than ever before.
Festival tickets will be available for purchase beginning at 9am PST tomorrow at www.feastportland.com.
Bon Appétit Presents Feast Portland is an organization with a strong charitable mission. Since 2012, Feast has raised more than $372,000 to help end hunger in Oregon and across the country, and is proud to continue supporting this important cause through its 2018 charitable partners.
The festival will continue its collaboration with Partners for a Hunger-Free Oregon, a statewide nonprofit organization that raises awareness about the problem of hunger and solutions, advocates for more just programs and policies to end hunger, and connects communities to food resources. This year, Feast will also add a second, Oregon-based charitable partner – Urban Gleaners. Urban Gleaners collects and redistributes over 70,000 pounds of food every month, feeding over 5,000 people every week through school pantries, summer free farmers markets, and Mobile Markets at low-income housing communities.
“Feast Portland exemplifies the bounty and the spirit of Oregon with so many people coming together to contribute to the goal of ending childhood hunger,” said Annie Kirschner, Executive Director of Partners for a Hunger-Free Oregon. “We’re proud to work side-by-side with Feast Portland and the culinary community to, as partners, make sure that all kids – from PDX to Malheur – have plenty of nourishing food to eat.”
