It’s LifeWise Oregon Berry Festival Time!

The Ecotrust Event Space hosts the 4rd Annual Oregon Berry Festival
July 18-19, 2014

Featuring more than 40 different booths with first of Oregon’s bountiful berry harvest for 2014.

Whether you crave juicy, plump blackberries, mouth watering strawberry preserves or a good old fashioned blueberry pie, Oregon’s bountiful berry season will be on full offer at the 4th Annual LifeWise Oregon Berry Festival.

This free, family friendly event will feature a 2-day farmers market, a children’s booth with activities and crafts, a main stage with cooking demos and entertainment, health and wellness seminars and more berry deliciousness than you can possibly imagine.

NEW for 2014: the expanded festival will feature a Know Your Oregon Berries booth, which will provide berry handling and storage tips, harvest dates and everything you need to know to help you enjoy the berries when you get them home (if you can resist eating them on the way!)

Returning to the berry calendar in addition to the popular daytime events will be the Gala Berry Dinner on Saturday, July 19th. Held on the rooftop terrace of the Ecotrust building, the dinner will feature a berry centric menu from a selection of Portland’s top chefs. And if you want more, LifeWise Oregon Berry Festival Restaurant Month will be happening across the city, with a range of local restaurants highlighting specialty berry menu items
available all July long.

Festival admission is free, and the hours will be from Noon to 6pm on Friday, July 18 and 11am to 5pm on Saturday, July 19.
