Feast Portland is more than a food and drink festival. It’s a movement that celebrates the diverse food and beverage community in Portland and around the world. Feast represents Oregon the incubator: a place where chefs, restaurateurs and entrepreneurs redefine what it means to be a leader in the 21st Century; a think tank where conversations about mindfulness, balance and leadership in food and beverage intersect; and a platform to showcase the most inspiring ideas and personalities from our city, our region, our country and worldwide. Through expansive one-of-a-kind large-scale events, intimate hands-on classes and collaborative dinners and thought-provoking panels, Feast has welcomed guests from around the globe and donated more than $450,000 to hunger relief charities helping to fight hunger in Oregon. It will be held from Sept. 12 - 15 at various locations within the Portland metro area. For details, visit feastportland.com.
