Three Main Events to Attend at Feast Portland

The countdown to Feast Portland is on! We want to share three of the festival’s amazing main events that we can’t wait to experience!

80’s vs 90’s
THURSDAY, SEPT 13TH 6:00PM – 9:00PM

It’s no secret, we’re all obsessed (again) with the 80s and 90s. The permed hair, leg warmers and seven-layer dip are back, and we’ve enlisted the help of 20 of the hottest chefs from Portland and across America to jog your memory with their own unexpected takes on what we ate back then. Set to a cassette-worthy mix of hair bands, grunge and classic hip-hop, you’ll be channeling your inner Michael or Britney in no time. To make things even more interesting, we’ve turned this into a team competition where half the chefs will represent the 80s and the other half the 90s in a throwback cook-off that’s guaranteed to knock your parachute pants off. Maybe your shoulder pads, too

FRIDAY GRAND TASTING PRESENTED BY NEW SEASONS MARKET
FRIDAY, SEPT 14TH 1:00PM – 5:00PM

The Grand Tasting is Feast’s city-block-sized celebration of eating and drinking in the heart of Downtown Portland, where you get up-close and personal with more than 80 vendors, including some of the best chefs, vintners, brewers, bakers, cheesemakers and food artisans from the Northwest and across America. “Fun.” “Surprising.” “Exciting.” The Feast Grand Tasting is all those things. At Feast, we choose our adjectives carefully. So when we put the word “Grand” in front of “Tasting,” we meant it.

NIGHT MARKET: RING OF FIRE PRESENTED BY ALASKA MILEAGE PLAN
FRIDAY, SEPT 14TH 1:00PM – 5:00PM

In Portland, people go about their daily business within sight of four active volcanoes – that’s normal life here on the Pacific Rim, aka “The Ring of Fire” and that explains why the flavors coming from the West Coast and places like Peru, Mexico, and East Asia are a little bolder and a little more distinctive than those from less fiery locations. Encompassing everything from Hawaiian pig to American whiskey, the breadth of the food and drink will get you fired up for more. With Zidell Yards at South Waterfront as the epicenter, this year’s Night Market is brewing up creativity from over 20 all-star chefs. Add an array of adventurous drinks and some DJ-fueled tunes, and you’ve got one helluva show!
