The 15th annual Oregon Truffle Festival invites truffle lovers from around the world to appreciate, learn about and explore truffles from in and around the Willamette Valley. Growing conditions in the valley are perfectly suited to truffles and the word is getting out. Four unique and elegant weekend-long experiences are offered: The Epicurious, The Gourmand, The Truffle Growers All-In Adventure and The Urban Forager.
The Joriad North American Truffle Dog Championship also takes place during the festival on Thursday, January 23. Other a la carte events during the weekend include Saturday's Grand Truffle Dinner and Sunday's Fresh Truffle Marketplace. As always, there will be new events and new venues to help celebrate Oregon truffles and regional culinary traditions, including the best of Oregon wine.
Main events are held in and around Eugene and tickets can be bought online prior to events.
