There were a good number of businesses represented, but not enough good food options to choose from. Some restaurants didn't seem to present food options currently on their menu (which is bad since I wanted to sample menu items).

The food was good but the prices were very expensive. My husband and I spent over 100 there! I was thinking they would have more local vendors sampling various foods and you paying for a larger portion. I won't be back

The food selection was not as wide as I had anticipated compared to before. Portion was small and it was pricy. The overall quality has dropped.

The 29th annual The Bite of Oregon, presented by Amica Insurance, returns to Portland’s waterfront for its yearly homage to everything Oregon. At this year’s festival, attendees can taste-test foods (ranging $2–$10) dished out by restaurant vendors, at a chef’s table, and from some of Oregon’s best food carts. Celebrity chef Aaron McCargo Jr., star of the Food Network’s Big Daddy’s House, is also on hand to dazzle taste buds. 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, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary.

The Bite of Oregon takes place at Tom McCall Waterfront Park from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday, August 10, and Saturday, August 11, and from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday, August 12.
