First Taste Oregon – April 15-16, 2022

Welcome to First Taste Oregon!

First Taste is an event of epic proportions featuring fabulous Oregon Wines, Hard Ciders, Spirits, Brews & Delectable Eats for a one of a kind shopping experience.

After careful consideration, we’re rescheduling First Taste to April 15 & 16 this year in the Columbia Hall at the Oregon State Fairgrounds in Salem. This decision didn’t come easily, but the ultimate factor was – that we need to keep everyone safe. We’re excited about the new dates and we’ll still have our great vendors, entertainment, and an exciting new VIP lounge experience. Join us this spring for the best Oregon has to offer!

We’ll See You April 15th-16th, 2022!
