- $7.50 for one weekend pass to The Bite of Oregon ($15 value)
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 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 Bite of Oregon takes place at Tom McCall Waterfront Park from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday, August 8, and Saturday, August 9, and from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday, August 10.
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.
