The city of Woodburn invites all Oregonians to enjoy a family-friendly weekend of live entertainment, vendors and lots of great cultural food at the  2019 Taste of Woodburn in the heart of downtown. The city held its first “Taste” in 2018, and it was a huge success with more than 2,000 visitors attending the event to dance, eat and enjoy the fun-filled atmosphere of downtown Woodburn.

“We are looking forward to bringing this event back to our community in 2019 and to all of those visitors who enjoyed the great tastes of Woodburn,” says Jamie Johnk, the city’s Economic Development Director.

Features of the event include:  

  • The Food: Pick up a Passport and learn about the different regions of Mexico represented by restaurants in the downtown core. After you’ve enjoyed the happenings in the plaza, follow the signs to many of the nearby restaurants, where owners are cooking up and selling special dishes that represent their regions.
  • The Entertainment: Music and entertainment ranges from traditional Mexican music and dancing, to rock bands, and acoustic music. On Saturday, groups include Woodburn High School Mariachi Band, Woodburn School District’s Ballet Folklorico, Jay Lawson, Billy and the Rockets, Reedy3000, and Los Rebeldez. On Sunday, groups include Aztec dancers, Gypsy Marshall Duo, Chemeketa salsa dancers, and Dina y Los Rumberos.
  • The Vendors: Vendors from around the region will be selling their hand-crafted items and gifts. There will be informational booths, and more.
  • The Car Show: This year, the event will include a car show from noon to 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, June 2nd.

Meet your friends downtown, or make new ones, as the community comes together to enjoy the best that Woodburn has to offer!
