Dear Gorge Hops & Hogs Fans,
It’s with mixed emotions that we announce the cancellation of the 2020 Gorge Hops and Hogs Fest. This decision was not taken lightly as we know how much this festival means to fans of BBQ, craft beer, and The Dalles community as a whole. Out of respect for public safety, community health, and the obligation to avoid large gatherings, the festival has been postponed to 2021.
Thank you to everyone that loves this festival as much as we do. Have a beer or three for us as we figure out what our next steps are and what a beer & BBQ festival might look like in a post COVID-19 world.
Cheers The Dalles, we love ya!
EAT BBQ, DRINK BEER, DO GOOD.
When the scent of blooming cherry blossoms fade into the hickory sweet aroma of mouth-watering BBQ, it’s time for the area’s tastiest summer celebration, Gorge Hops and Hogs presented by Sedition Brewing Company.
Mark your calendar for the 3rd Annual Gorge Hops and Hogs Festival. BBQ enthusiasts will fill Lewis & Clark Festival Park to enjoy the sights, sounds and tastes of summer. The family-friendly BBQ extravaganza will feature a BBQ competition, People’s Choice BBQ tasting, regional Craft Beer and wine, beer yoga, live music, food trucks, sponsor exhibits, backyard games, a kids’ zone and more. It’s a perfect setting for a day of BBQ, beer and picnics. Bring your blankets or lawn chairs and enjoy!
Admission to the park is FREE.
Come to The Gorge Hops and Hogs Festival and see for yourself why beer and BBQ rule!
The Gorge Hops and Hogs Fest benefits local non-profit organizations. For 2018 and 2019, we selected the Columbia Gorge Veterans Museum.
The mission of the Columbia Gorge Veterans Museum is to honor military veterans, past and present, from all branches of the Armed Forces, with primary focus on veterans from Wasco, Sherman, Klickitat, Skamania, and Hood River Counties; Inspire and educate visitors about the region’s extensive military heritage; and educate students in grades K-12 about the region’s military heritage through the stories of our veterans. The Columbia Gorge Veterans Museum is a collaboration between The Dalles Legion Post 19 and the Mid-Columbia Veterans Memorial Committee. The Gorge Hops and Hogs Fest partners with the Columbia Gorge Veterans Museum, to support the amazing work they do!
Thank you to all the wonderful beer-loving folks who gladly down a pint or three to give back to organizations that help make our community a better place.
