(Garibaldi, Oregon) – The delicious and wonder-filled Crave the Coast food fest returns to the north Oregon coast on September 28, as Garibaldi swells with tons of visitors and a bevy of things to see and taste. Last year, more than 800 people attended the inaugural event, held in the little hamlet that straddles the beaches and the bay.
Again, Crave the Coast celebrates the passion, collaboration and creativity of producers, fishers, harvesters, brewers, winemakers, cheesemakers and chefs that have turned this part of the north Oregon coast into a culinary destination. The festival will feature dozens of local food and beverage producers, food trucks serving fish n’ chips, chowder and mac n’ cheese, cooking demonstrations, prize giveaways and an opportunity to meet the makers.
This year, it was named one of the top five food festivals in a poll of readers of Sunset Magazine. The festival takes place under the event tent in Garibaldi on Tillamook Bay on Saturday, Sept. 28, 2019, from 11 am to 4 pm.
Forty food vendors and food trucks will offer generous samples, plus offer products, beverages and meals for sale.
Among the exhibitors are Pelican Brewing, Tillamook Creamery, Three Sisters Kettle Corn, Garibaldi Roasting, Backyard Farms, Cannon Beach Distillery, Moon River, Fish People, Depoe Bay Brewing, Ordnance Brewing, Food Roots, Urban Farm Foods, Sheltered Nook, Garibaldi Cellars, Werner Gourmet Meat Snacks, Werner Brewing, Garibaldi Portside Bistro, Gingifers, Bull Run Cider, North Fork 53, Nehalem Bay Winery, Jacobsen Salt and more.
The main stage will feature chef demos by Maylin Chavez of Olympia Oyster Bar, Jennifer Bloeser of Oregon Coast Wasabi, Donna Riani of Lincoln City Culinary Center, and Matt Freehill, the History Channel’s winning carver on “The Butcher” television show.
There will also be Guess the Grub competitions and Name that Spot, contests to see who can identify the most iconic spots on the Tillamook Coast. Prizes will be given throughout the event.
