For one weekend each January one building at the Oregon State Fairgrounds turns it into a wonderland of everything Oregon. Music, food, drink, activities, handcrafts, - you name it. If it comes from or is made in our magical state, there it is. WOW!
Hosted by Ingalls & Associates, who always put on the best of parties, we were beyond thrilled to get the invitation to perform on the main stage - on our own Tim Crosby's birthday no less! It was a party within a party!
Word got out quickly on that one and soon we had birthday cupcakes direct from Spirit Mountain Casino, a growler of fine cider from 12 Bridge Ciderworks, homemade guacamole from our friend (and official photographer!) Tamara Malcome, and several tables full of Tim's students to help us celebrate. Too much fun!
Children danced, people sang along, we ran into dear friends and made new ones. Delightful discoveries of places to go and items produced in our state were everywhere you looked. It was like Christmas all over again!!
And afterwards, a late night dinner celebration to wrap it all up.
Oh how we hope we'll get asked back to this one again. First Taste Oregon is definitely on our favorites list! Thank you Scott and Jill Ingalls. Your enthusiasm to showcase the State of Oregon continue to outstand and amaze!!
