The Oregon Truffle Festival
With four native Oregon truffles and the successful cultivation of prized European truffles in the Willamette Valley, the region is North America’s contribution to the short list of world-class wine and truffle regions.
Join us in the Willamette Valley, the heart of Oregon wine and truffle country, this January and February. Our lineup of events will include hands-on truffle foraging, lectures from experts in truffle cultivation, decadent lunches and dinners from James Beard-recognized chefs, the only fresh truffle marketplace of its kind, and so much more! The full schedule will be released in the coming months, and you can be the first to know by signing up for our mailing list.
The Oregon Truffle Festival Lineup
Each year, the Oregon Truffle Festival kicks off the Eugene weekend in late January with The Joriad North American Truffle Dog Championship. This event is the only truffle hunting competition in the world, drawing truffle-hunting dogs and their trainers from across the country.
After a public indoor preliminary, the best truffle hunters go head-to-head through Oregon forests in search of fresh Oregon black truffles. The event wraps up with an award presentation and the can’t-miss Parade of Dogs.

The Oregon Truffle Festival offers a variety of events this weekend, including exquisite truffle meals, learning opportunities for the entrepreneurial truffle grower, and an iconic Grand Truffle Dinner on Saturday evening.
Every ticket package also includes access to the Oregon Fresh Truffle Marketplace, a unique event highlighting the burgeoning farm-to-table Oregon truffle industry.
