Savor Cannon Beach
Four days of wine tastings showcasing Northwest wines, culinary events focusing on regional cuisine, a series of wine education programs and a wine walk make Savor Cannon Beach one of the Northwest's most unique wine and culinary festivals.
This community-wide festival March 10-13, 2016 features food, wine and arts events all around town. The event kicks off with the Thursday Night Throwdown, where participants taste twelve select wines including two of each varietal, one from Oregon and one from Washington, then vote on their favorites to determine which state reigns supreme. Other events include the Battle of the Blends featuring four red and four white wine blends from the Northwest. The evening also includes the Battle of Bites, showcasing appetizers by local chefs who compete for Best Bite. Saturday of the festival is the Savor Cannon Beach Wine Walk featuring approximately 40 Northwest wineries pouring tastings at Cannon Beach art galleries, restaurants and retail shops, all within easy waking distance in this compact beach community.
Local shops and galleries also host their own events over the course of the weekend. Cannon Beach businesses participate in a Tasting Tour featuring free or low cost tastings ranging from chocolates and olive oils to specialty salts and spirits.
Individual event tickets are available for $40 each. Follow Savor Cannon Beach on Facebook, visit savorcannonbeach.com or call (503) 717-1122 for more information and to purchase tickets.
