Culinary Tourism Development: Oregon Bounty

Travel Oregon targets culinary travelers through its Oregon Bounty campaign. This flagship initiative promotes Oregon as a place where it’s still possible to have authentic, personal encounters with those making and producing Oregon’s award-winning wines, craft beers and other fine artisan food products and ingredients. The campaign promotes Oregon as a not-to-be missed culinary destination, encourages overnight stays during a typically slower travel season (September-November) and highlights experiences in every region of the state. While this is our main messaging pillar for the fall, we also promote culinary tourism year-round.

Want to get involved? Tell us about your business and any unique local attractions, tours, classes and events. We want to know about amazing food and drink experiences across the state — from great dining opportunities to the exploration of creameries, breweries and wine country, to chocolate making classes, distillery tours and farm stays. It’s all critical to the success of Oregon Bounty.

  • Share your events, story ideas and business listings with your local DMO who will feed this information to Travel Oregon or/and industry guild (e.g. Oregon Wine Board). For more information on adding or updating your content, please check out The Orb.
  • We’re always looking for unique culinary ideas for our blog, social media outlets, e-newsletters and PR story pitches.  If you know a great local culinary personality, restaurant, food or drink trail, a unique package or deal, we want to hear about it. We’d also encourage you to check out our Oregon Bounty Toolkit to help you promote culinary tourism in your area.
