ABOUT FEAST

Feast Portland is more than a food and drink festival. It’s a movement that celebrates the diverse food and beverage community in Portland, Oregon and around the world. The festival is grounded in a sense of place, telling the story of the chefs, winemakers, brewers, farmers, artisans and makers in Oregon and how they connect with and inspire the rest of the world. Feast represents Oregon the incubator: a place where chefs, restaurateurs and entrepreneurs redefine what it means to be a leader in the 21st Century; a think tank where conversations about mindfulness, balance and leadership in food and beverage intersect; and a platform to showcase the most inspiring ideas and personalities from our city, our region, our country and worldwide. Through expansive one-of-a-kind large-scale events, intimate hands-on classes and collaborative dinners and thought-provoking panels, Feast has welcomed guests from around the globe and donated more than $450,000 to hunger relief charities helping to fight hunger in Oregon.

Now in its eighth year, Feast Portland has been called “the best food festival in the country” by Thrillist, the “food festival to beat” by Tasting Table and has been recognized by local and national media alike, including USA Today, Eater National, The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Paste, Huffington Post, The Daily Meal, Zagat, The Oregonian, Portland Monthly magazine, Seattle Met magazine, The San Francisco Chronicle, and Fodor’s Travel “North America’s Top 15 Food Festivals.”
