Catch Feast Portland fever early, and enter to win Feast Portland "The Package" passes for LIFE!
You know what time of year it is, folks? Back-to-school? Summer-to-fall? Football season? WRONG!
Well, fine, you're technically correct (and I've got a LOT of back-to-school recipes & tips coming soon), but in my local food & beverage obsessed world, it's known as FEAST Portland season!
We're one month and counting away from the official start of my favorite food & beverage fest, Bon Appétit Presents Feast Portland, but the festivities have already started rolling out.
This will be my sixth year attending Feast Portland (check out my Feast Portland Guide for a festival primer), and I am looking forward to all of my fave events - plus some exciting new ones.
This year, Feast Portland has teamed up with the Port of Portland at Portland International Airport (my fave airport in the world!!) for a “Feast For Life FlyPDX” campaign and social media giveaway. The prize is insane: you could win Feast Portland's "The Package" passes for life. Yes: if you win, you get passes for two to attend all of the main events at Feast Portland every single year, for the rest of your beautiful life!
WHAT?! That's crazy right? How can you NOT enter this contest?!
Feast Portland & PDX Airport

The superstar line-up includes The Country Cat, Kenny and Zukes,Deschutes Brewery, and Stumptown Coffee Roasters.
Each Friday in August, from 11:30am - 1:30pm, at the airport's pre-security Clock Tower, YOU can join the fun and get a taste of these hot new items. Meet the chefs and reps from the food & beverage companies, folks from Feast Portland and Portland International Airport, and get extra entries to win Feast "The Package" passes for life! I'll be there and would love to see you!!!
The Country Cat's BLT
This week, through Thursday, August 9, The Country Cat will feature a special BLT sandwich with their newly packaged house made bacon and local heirloom tomatoes.
Chefs/owners Adam and Jackie Sappington were on hand last Friday slinging samples of these tasty sandos to happy travelers and folks who came to the airport for the event.
This is no ordinary BLT, folks. The basil mayo puts it over the top for me - I am obsessed with the basil mayo! Then there's the house made bacon, lettuce, and heirloom tomatoes stacked between rosemary focaccia bread from Grand Central Bakery... go get it at The Country Cat's airport location before it's gone!
Photo booth fun
By the clock tower, you can also get in on some photo booth fun -- and get additional entries to win! Directions for additional entries are posted by the photo booth.
You and your kids will also love the free brightly colored airport lanyards the airport folks are giving out at each event, too.
