Feast Portland 2017 is coming up real soon! Feast is without a doubt the biggest and most talked about food event in town. I missed Feast 2016 last year as I was still busy settling in after my cross country move, but I’m excited to be covering this year’s highly anticipated festival!
As you’re reading this, you’re probably wondering how veg-friendly Feast is? Well, that’s exactly the question I’m hoping to answer. I’ll uncover the vegetarian and vegan eats at Feast Portland and report back to my veggie friends. And from the looks of it, there’s plenty of vegan booze to go around. ;)
From September 14 to September 17, food enthusiasts and top chefs gather from all over to celebrate the best of the food and drink scene from Portland and beyond at Feast, while raising money for charity partner Partners for a Hunger-Free Oregon. From all-inclusive tasting events, to intimate dinner series, hands-on classes, Feast Portland has something to please every type of festival attendee.
The Grand Tastings on Friday and Saturday are the highlights of Feast Portland, and if you’re interested in attending, you better grab one of the last few tickets for Friday! The Night Market and Brunch Village are other hot events that have already sold out. This year’s Drink Tank offers a diverse lineup featuring gin, rosé, pilsner, punch and more. There’s also a behind the scenes event with Bon Appetit Test Kitchen (how cool!), a Cook and Capture class about food photography at home, and a vegetable focused event with Bon Appetit.
For Portland foodies, it’s going to be a busy few days of eating, drinking, and stretchy pants wearing (hah!). As we get closer to the festival, I’ll share some tips I’ve received from other bloggers in town who have attended Feast Portland in the past. Are you excited to feast?!
