32313291_sThe 11th annual Oregon Truffle Festival will spread over three weekends. Tickets are now on sale for Oregon Truffle Festival 2016. Dates are January 22-24, 2016 in Newberg and the beautiful Yamhill Valley wine and truffle country, and January 29-31, 2016 in Eugene and the surrounding countryside. The Joriad™, the 2nd Annual North American Truffle Dog Championship will take place January 16 & 17, 2016.
It’s the only event of its kind in the country, and the foremost wintertime culinary event in the State of Oregon. As the first truffle festival in the English-speaking world, and “one of the top 5 destinations in the world for truffle lovers,” the Oregon Truffle Festival offers a culinary experience that simply cannot be found anywhere else. This is an international event that joins truffle fanciers and truffle experts from all over the world in three days of celebration, educational seminars, and hands-on experiences.
Now in its 11th year, the Oregon Truffle Festival will expand to three weekends beginning with the Joriad™ North American Truffle Dog Championship, moving to an exploration of the terroir of Yamhill Valley truffle and wine country, and concluding with the festival’s popular Eugene weekend of events to close out the festivities. That means more events, more chefs, more education, more truffle hunting and more opportunities to celebrate Oregon’s most treasured culinary ingredient.
