UPCOMING FOOODIE EVENTS IN NW? [moved from Not About Food]

rookcook1 Apr 20, 2007 08:31 PM

I'm looking for some foodie festivals/good outdoor markets/foodie events in the Northwest. Can anyone help me locate a few within the next couple months? Thanks ahead of time!

    It is a bit spendy but the International pinot Noir Celebration in McMinnville at the end of July is always a great time. http://www.ipnc.org/

        I'm not sure if it's too late to volunteer, but how about Taste of the Nation in Portland on Monday, April 30th?

          Portland Farmers' Market often has special events. They welcome volunteers.

        Next week-4/27-29- is "A Taste of Ashland". Lots of bites of food and nips of wines from lots of places, local and not so local. Tons of fun. C'mon down.

          RC, The annual Oyster Festival in Shelton is usually the first weekend in October. If you love Oysters, it's a must.

              The Seattle cheese festival (May 18-20) has been mentioned on this board before, but it's worth bringing up again.

                  Portland Farmers' Market would be a great place to start!
