How it works
Curation is a collaboration between artists within both the culinary and music worlds to create a unique experience combining food, music, and drink during Pickathon. Pickathon, Chef Jason French (owner of Ned Ludd), Kelly Cox from The Original Fare, and Travel Portland work together to select world-class Portland chefs and pair them with festival artists for another year of outstanding Curation events. 

The evening starts with appetizers and drinks from a featured bartender. Next, attendees are treated to an intimate performance by the special guest artist, followed by an expanded multi-course meal, and ending with hand-selected tunes by one of our DJ’s. This year we will be adding a few twists and turns to make each Curation event unique!

Each Curation event lasts an hour and a half from start to finish. Curation events are open to any festival attendee, but each event is limited to 75 lucky guests.

Thursday Dinner (7-8:30pm) at the Old Farmhouse
