- $7.50 for one weekend pass ($15 value)
The food festival, presented by Amica Insurance, returns to the city’s waterfront for its yearly homage to everything Oregon. At this year’s event, attendees can taste-test foods dished out by restaurant vendors, at a chef’s table, and from some of Oregon’s best food carts. Craft beers and wines help wash down bites, and live entertainment, including two music stages, keeps feet moving throughout the weekend. The event benefits Special Olympics Oregon.
The fest takes place from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday, August 7, and Saturday, August 8, and from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday, August 9. This voucher does not allow entry to event; customers must redeem for tickets online to gain entry.
The Bite of Oregon
For 32 years, The Bite of Oregon has rolled out its tents, tables, and stages every summer for a multiday celebration of the state’s food, culture, and residents. Attendees raise their forks to the idea that “Life Tastes Better Here,” a mantra the festival lives up to by offering a culinary bounty crafted by some of Oregon’s most talented chefs. From small plates to full meals, vendors distribute their creations and, in between bites, regional wines and craft beers splash both new and familiar flavors across palates. As visitors wine and dine, local and national bands provide the soundtrack from multiple stages.
Demonstrating its respect for the community, The Bite of Oregon strives to be a Zero Waste event, each year producing less waste by lining its grounds with recycling stations and hiring unemployed goats to eat everyone’s napkins.
