FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PORTLAND, Aug. 11, 2017 – Oregon was the first state to make Labor Day a public holiday, way back in
1887. That’s right; we understand the importance of enjoying a job well done. This Labor Day weekend,
enjoying your time off also allows you to experience one of the most prestigious culinary festivals in the
West. Featuring a new location and new dates, The Bite of Oregon benefiting Special Olympics Oregon,
delivers an exquisite culinary experience from every corner of the state.
Serving up the finest food from restaurants and chefs, The Bite also features some of the most creative
food carts, award-winning wineries, distilleries and the renowned Oregon Craft Beer Garden pouring
from the best breweries and cider houses. Also not to be missed is the culinary magic of Iron Chef
Oregon, Appetizer Alley, Sports Oregon, live music and more.

It’s a great cause. Go ahead and have that second dessert.
With the exciting new dates, Labor Day weekend, September 1-4, the Bite of Oregon offers everyone more time to play and to truly savor all the state has to offer. Open daily from 11 a.m. – 10 p.m. there’s plenty of time for it all.
In its new home at the Rose Quarter, it couldn’t be easier to attend. Featuring easy transit options, the festival is steps away from MAX trains, bus lines, the Portland Streetcar and CTRAN. Guests can also walk over, bike down (with bike parking) or load up the family and drive in with reduced rate parking of just $5.
