Welcome Feast

This summer, TEMPOart presents TEMPO’19: Welcome Feast, a public arts and culinary diplomacy event series at Fox Field in Portland. They will match chefs from Portland’s New-Mainer community with chefs from Portland’s blossoming restaurant scene to create menus for three public meals at Fox Field. Members of Portland’s diverse communities will be invited to share the meals that will hopefully spark conversation in a uniquely beautiful outdoor setting.

The dinners will seat between 60-70 guests each. As there are a limited number of seats, they will use a lottery system to determine the guest list. To sign up to attend one of these community events, please enter your name and information into the Welcome Feast Lottery:

Welcome Feast dinner tickets are free!
