Enjoy Oregon seafood and delicious beverages at the Portland Seafood and Wine Festival.
For the past 16 years, Portlanders have gathered during the peak Dungeness crab season to savor the locally sourced, fermented and distilled food and drinks. The Portland Seafood and Wine Festival features more than 100 exhibitors ready to serve you a delicious bounty from our state. Along with seafood, craft beer, cider, and distilled spirit vendors are more than 60 of Oregon’s finest wineries offering tastings.
This is a family-friendly event with live entertainment, face painters, balloon artists, oyster shuck contests and live music on the event stage.
Tickets are priced per day and include entry to the event. Online tickets for ages 18 and up are $16 through March 24. Then the price increases to $18. Ages 11-17 and 60+ pay $14. Kids 10 and under attend for free. I have included the $2 online processing fee in these prices. You can also buy tickets onsite at the ticket booth for the same price. Food, drinks and samples are all sold separately by exhibitors.
Want free tickets? Volunteer at the event! Sign up for a two-hour volunteer shift and you’ll get a free t-shirt and two tickets to the event.
The Portland Seafood and Wine Festival is taking place March 25-26, 2022. Hours are 2-10 p.m. on Friday and 12-10 p.m. on Saturday. The first 250 people each day through the gates receive a commemorative Portland Seafood and Wine Festival glass.
This year, the event is held at the Portland Expo Center, 2060 N. Marine Drive in Portland. The biggest downfall of events at the Portland Expo Center is the parking fee. You’ll pay (the ridiculous fee of) $12 onsite. If you have a TriMet pass, I recommend taking public transit. The most direct way to get there is on the MAX train, which drops you off a short walk from the expo center entrance.
Masks, proof of vaccination or test are not required. All vendor booths will have hand sanitizer.
