Besides all the great music, dance, art, and programming at Pickathon, the food is always one of our big highlights for everyone! Whether it’s waiting in line in the morning for one of Pine State Biscuits’ fried chicken, bacon, cheese, and gravy sandwiches/hangover cures, ramen for lunch at Boke Bowl, or treating yourself to a late night pizza from Al Forno before checking out a starlit set, food at Pickathon builds memories. This year we’re pleased to welcome back perennial favorites and some new surprises too! We mentioned on Sunday that we’re excited to welcome our first Farmer’s Market to Pickathon. Working with Rubinette Produce we’ll have fresh fruits and vegetables available to everyone to supplement their meals.
Nico’s Ice Cream – yeah, we bet it’ll be hot this year at Pickathon! Indulge in some ice cream! Vanilla ice cream is blended with local Willamette Valley fruits and berries in a special machine imported from New Zealand!
Piccone’s Corner – speaking of farm to table, Piccone’s Corner sources pork from their own farm, Wallow and Root, in Sandy, Oregon. They have old world heart and new school style with Italian riffs and standards.
Ate-Oh-Ate – Oregon and the Northwest have been home to Hawaiians for many generations, so we’re happy to welcome Hawaiian eatery Ate-Oh-Ate to Pickathon! They’ll feature crispy pork belly Aina burgers, teriyaki grilled tofu and vegan options, and maybe even some spam musubi!
Dee’s Lush Kitchen – their food menu features unique, handheld meals that are a perfect mix of fresh veggies, proteins and carbs, specially designed for festivals. Ingredients are fresh, locally-sourced and recipes are always made from scratch (vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options).
Obon Shokudo – Obon is plant-based Japanese homestyle comfort food. They source as many ingredients as they can from local producers!
Can’t make it to Pickathon in person? We will miss you, but tickets are on sale now for our one-of-a-kind livestream experience with FRQNCY. This is a new livestreaming platform designed to bring artists and audiences closer together, and every set at the festival will be streaming there live!
