Our Events

 

Main Events

Versus

Feast Portland kicks off the weekend with a friendly competition. Whether the theme is 80s vs. 90s as it was in 2018, West Coast vs. East Coast or Texas BBQ vs. Carolina BBQ, half of our guest chefs compete against the other half in the most spirited event of the weekend.

Night Market

From Hawaiian Pig to American Whiskey to the best of Israeli street food, the Feast Portland Night Market is a beat-fueled celebration of global street food by some of the most inspiring chefs from Portland, America, and beyond.

Grand Tasting

The festival’s biggest event returns in 2019. An inspired showcase of chefs, artisans, brewers, distillers and more from Oregon and beyond.

Smoked

Last year our flame-fueled celebration of animal, vegetable and mineral sold out in seven minutes. That’s because Smoked is the ultimate celebration of live fire craft cooking featuring some of the best chefs in America, incredible wines from Oregon and beyond, and inspiring brands, libations and more.

Brunch Village

Portland, Oregon is Brunch City USA, and Brunch Village is a celebration of the chefs, artisans, beverage masters and brands who do brunch best. Imagined as the mellow Sunday brunch after a long and fun weekend, Brunch Village is the joyful coming together of all the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of our favorite mid-day meal.

 

Fun-Size Events

Ranging from 300 to 600 guests, Fun-Size means big enough for quality engagement but small enough to deliver the intimate moments. Our 2018 events included Franklin BBQ and Friends presented by Visit Austin, Texas; Nouveau Bistro Presented by Beaujolais Wines of France and Bon Appétit’s Healthy-ish 5k ish presented by Caviar.

Dinner Series

The magic of Feast Portland comes alive in the Dinner Series as we welcome top chefs from around the country and around the world for creative, collaborative and convivial moments for guests, media and participants to savor. Our 2018 themes included Zero Proof with Andrew Zimmern, Gabe Rucker and Sean Brock, a beefsteak dinner with Angie Mar and Peter Cho and an east meets west Michelin-star studded collaboration with Kristen Murray, Dominique Crenn and Emma Bengston.
