First Taste Oregon would not be complete without some incredible musical talent. We are excited to be featuring a full line up of musical talent on two different stages for your enjoyment. Sip on a glass of your new favorite beverage while at our piano bar stage or lounge around the main stage being entertained by talented musicians.

Rabbit Hole Virtual Reality Game

Rabbit Hole Reality is a Virtual Reality Arcade located in Salem, Oregon. A Virtual Reality Arcade is much like the classic arcades of the ‘80’s but instead of standing at a cabinet looking at a screen, you wear a headset that whisks you way to other worlds in almost complete immersion.
Customers can choose either a Virtual Reality game or a Virtual Reality experience using one of our HTC Vive systems. We offer over 40 different Virtual Reality titles to choose from.


Tickets are available for purchase online prior to the event, tickets will also be sold at the main entry during the event. Same day ticket sales will be cash or card only and there are ATM’s located on site. Purchase online early and give them as a unique gift this holiday season!


Get the most out of your First Taste experience with our VIP tickets. VIP tickets will include admission into the event, a commemorative event glass, and complimentary tastes from two of our hand picked exhibitors. VIP admission can be purchased for one day for $20.


Individual tastes are sold separately by our exhibitors and can be purchased directly at the event. Many of our exhibitors will offer a taste of their specialty for free!

Art, Wine, Brew, Spirits and Food

First Taste features some of the industry’s best winemakers, craft brewers, spirit distillers, artists and culinary masters. If wine is not your thing, enjoy a hard cider or a craft brew from one of the state’s best craft brewers or discover your new favorite distilled beverage. With over 20 various artists and commercial vendors, you’re sure to find a one-of-a-kind must-have item.
