The LifeWise Oregon Berry Festival is made for berry lovers, who know it’s summer in Oregon when the ripest, juiciest berries start appearing perfect for making pies, jams and other decadent treats.
Come on down to the LifeWise Oregon Berry Festival to find all the freshest Oregon berries including everything from Marionberries to Ollalieberries and the best blueberries and strawberries you will find anywhere. The festival showcases everything berry!
In addition to fresh berry vendors there will be 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 one of Portland’s finest chefs.
It wouldn’t be an Oregon summer without sweet, juicy berries showing up in everything from beer to pies! You’re sure to find both at the second annual Oregon Berry Festival, July 20th & 21st, 2012 at the Ecotrust event spaces in Portland. Visitors will have a chance to taste and buy some of the season’s best berries and also sample amazing products made with Oregon’s berry bounty.
