Have a berry good 2017!


After 6 wonderful years celebrating Oregon’s delicious berries and berry products with you all, we have decided that 2016 served up our last slice of Marionberry pie, blueberry pizza and strawberry lemonade.  Thank you for all of your support and involvement over the years in what was named a “Top Food Festival in the USA” by Sunset, Parade, and Formers magazines. It’s hard not to love Oregon berries and we hope that you continue to support the industry and businesses using these delicious gems for years to come.

The Oregon Berry Festival ran from 2010 – 2016 and featured all the freshest Oregon berries including everything from Marionberries to Ollalieberries and the best blueberries and strawberries you could find anywhere. In addition to fresh berry vendors there were berry products galore, berry themed food booths, cooking demonstrations featuring berries, a children’s booth with berry themed crafts and for the gourmet touch a Gala Berry Dinner prepared by many of Portland’s finest chefs.
