I hope you like apples – fresh or fermented! Peaches too, and Korean food, and walking!
After the Polish Festival and sundry Oktoberfests, this is my favorite fall event. What’s not to like? There’s Apple tasting, old fashioned cider pressing, apple desserts, cooking demonstrations, and live music.
Food carts and live music make the fest fun for all age – and even well behaved dogs are welcome! Hard ciders from over 30 local and regional cideries will be on hand for (21 and over) sampling.
Celebrating the world’s greatest fruit, the peach, the 3rd annual Peche Fest returns to Saraveza and The Bad Habit Room on Saturday October 10th, fuzzier, fruitier and juicer than ever. Founded after organizers realized brewers were beginning to make some truly amazing and rare peach beers such as Upright Brewing’s Fantasia and Logsdon Farmhouse Ales Peche ‘n Brett, we figured if you could bring them together it would make for a very unique event. Now in its 3rd year, there will be over 25 peach beers and ciders in a variety of styles, as well as a peach-infused food and dessert menu and peach cocktails.
Chefs preparing dishes for the fest include Han Ly Hwang of Kim Jong Grillin, Bo Kwon of Koi Fusion, John Gorham of Toro Bravo, PJ Yang of Bamboo Sushi, Johanna Ware of Smallwares, Rick Gencarelli of Lardo, Peter Cho of Stray Dogs and more!
“Walk anywhere, everywhere, for any reason, or for no reason at all. This is Walktober: walking fun October 6th through Halloween (the greatest walking holiday of the year).”
Inspired by Pedalpalooza, three weeks of bikey fun in Portland held every June, the Oregon Walks conceived Walktober to promote walking as a fun, healthy, ubiquitous activity in the Portland metro region.
