Cascadia Food Festival is an annual food festival and summit celebrating our region’s eco-gastronomy, the intersection of food, food systems, and people. This is the second year of the festival and there are 3 parts to the celebration (pick 1 or all 3!)

1) Old Apple Tree Festival with the City of Vancouver - many activities including FREE APPLE PRESSING **bring your apples!**, music and workshops from 11-3pm. (There is an amazing apple tree at this location that is 193 years old!)

- Cider Garden: 15 hard ciders and Slow Food Cider Competition

- Community Cider Pressing Station: Press your own! BYO apples and jugs

- Taste Marketplace: Merchants with tastings of regional products from across Cascadia

- Craft booths and live music

2) The Slow Food Summit will feature speakers from 12-5pm as well as ample opportunity to network and make connections. The summit will include speaker lineups of regional food experts, activists, producers, chefs, and community leaders. The event will include a reception and networking designed to flow into the Cascadian Luau. This summit is designed to attract food movement leaders such as farmers and producers, active Slow Food members, organizational partners, chefs, and other food leaders.

We will break for a salmon and wine tasting. Wines generously provided by Maryhill Winery.

3) Cascadian Luau and Hawaiian Pig Roast Dinner (5-10pm): Small-plate menu(pupus) created by Tommy O’s Pacific Rim Bistro. Dishes honor the Hawaiian cultural history in the Vancouver area and throughout Cascadia by mixing Cascadian and Hawaiian ingredients to create unique versions of Polynesian cuisine. The menu will draw on ethically sourced ingredients and conscious food producers on the Big Island, sourced through a partnership with the Kohala Center and Slow Food Hawaii.
