A sunny July day, a chance to sample both fresh berries and a wide variety of berry products right in downtown Portland at the edge of the Pearl district is what’s in store for you when you visit one of the best summer festivals in the west. Admission is free to the festival located at the Ecotrust, 10th & Johnson in Portland. Hours will be from noon to 6pm on Friday, July 12th and 11am to 4:30pm on Saturday, July 13th.

There is no better way to spend a day with family and friends. The Oregon Berry Festival has something for all ages. A children’s booth with activities and take home crafts, a main stage with cooking demos featuring berries, of course, and booths filled with fresh berries, berry candies, berry spirits, berry cupcakes, berry vinegars and berry varieties and products you have only dreamt about!

If your foodie soul is hungering for a more sophisticated take on berries the Gala Berry Dinner, prepared by Portland’s award winning Chef Vitaly Paley will be held Friday night, July 12th at the Hotel Lucia.

If you are busy that night don’t despair July has been designated Oregon Berry Festival Restaurant Month, with berry centric menu items offered at local restaurants across the Metro area.
