It’s here! The mondo list of Feast Portland events was launched in New York on Monday night, and the lineup is sure to whet your appetite for the long weekend of great food coming to town September 20th through 23rd.
Filled with international culinary VIPs, Portland pride, and can’t-miss kick-off events (ahem), the event schedule for the Bon Appetit-sponsored food and wine festival is a harbinger of Portland’s fall induction into the upper echelon of the national food scene.

Throughout the weekend, these food celebs will partner with Portland’s best chefs to highlight the best of our city’s culinary offerings, from charcuterie and coffee to sandwiches and salmon.
Feast will kick off on September 20th with Portland Monthly’s Sandwich Invitational, featuring the sammy stylings of Bunk’s Tommy Habetz and Nick Wood, Beast’s Naomi Pomeroy, Franklin BBQ’s Aaron Franklin, and Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo of LA’s Animal. Get your tickets here.
