Portland’s 1st Annual Cowabunga Farm-To-Table Festival Comes to Rossi Farms. 3 days of chef competitions, demos, and tastings benefiting Oregon Food Bank & Parkrose School District.

Here in Portland, we embrace our international reputation as the foodie city. We are known for our vibrant restaurant scene, award-winning chefs, and artisanal, locally sourced ingredients. And it’s true: We care about what we eat, where it comes from, what it pairs with, what imprint it leaves behind, and of course, an Instagram-worthy plate. In Portland, farm–to–table isn’t just a restaurant concept—it’s a way of life.

At Portland Monthly’s inaugural Cowabunga All-You-Can-Eat Food Festival, we’ll celebrate everything we love about living—and eating—in Portland. With three days of tastings, demos, and competitions featuring all-star chefs, brewers, winemakers, distillers, farmers, and ranchers, it will be a weekend like no other.
