Thank you for a wonderful first year(2018)!

We came together for a weekend of celebration, exploration, and camaraderie. We explored Cascadia's ecogastronomy, and started to build a regional movement of farmers, chefs, and eaters for good, clean, fair food for all. 

Slow Food Cascadia 2018 has come and gone, and we are already looking forward to 2019! We would love to hear your thoughts on the future of this annual Slow Food Cascadia gathering.
