Well, this is exciting. Team Feast Presents – the geniuses behind the fantabulous Feast Portland – is now the official production, sponsorship, and marketing partner for Taste Washington. As someone who has attended every Feast Portland – okay, I missed the very first one – and who had the chance to attend Taste Washington for the very first time this past Spring, I am thrilled to hear about this partnership made in heaven.
So what does this great news meant to you? It means the Taste Washington 2020 promises to be the best one ever with new overall brand and refreshed look and feel. And their new festival lineup makes me want March 2020 to get here right this very second!
Think of it as the natural evolution of a tried and true festival that is committed to moving forward. “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” can lead to stagnation, something that Taste Washington would never settle for. That’s why this year’s guests can expect all sorts of exciting changes, including a brand-new Thursday night Dinner Series at some of Seattle’s top restaurants, an enormous Friday Night event at Pier 66, and a move for The New Vintage to Saturday night.
Don’t worry, Washington State’s fantabulous wines will be front and center as always, as will the remarkably inventive and deliciously fresh culinary scene of Seattle and beyond. The Grand Tasting – an impossibly large celebration of Washington wine all in one spot – will be back once again at CenturyLink Field Event Center. And, changes for Taste Washington that were already underway last year, will now be in full force, including a renewed focus on culinary talent, innovative programming, and all sorts of wine and food focused surprises.
I am particularly thrilled to hear that Taste Washington’s sit-down Sunday Brunch event will be back. The perfect way to wind up a perfect weekend of wine and food by celebrating with people who love it as much as you do. Bounty from the Pacific Northwest will be paired with Washington bubbly designed to thrill. Sounds like my kind of brunching.
Taste Washington 2019 was such an amazing weekend – the wine, the food, the people, the city of Seattle and all of the magic it has to offer from Chihuly’s Garden and Glass to the Space Needle to the Aquarium to Pike’s Place Market. I admit, I love Seattle, and as many times as I go, I always discover something new and leave inspired, especially when it comes to their food and wine scene. Cannot wait to be back in the heart of it. If you want to partake, be sure to mark your calendar for March 19-22. Tickets for Taste Washington go on sale January 17, 2020 and won’t last long.
