Welcome to WhiskeyFestNW, where every sip tells a story! Since our inception in 2010, we’ve dedicated ourselves to celebrating the spirit of whiskey, becoming the Pacific Northwest’s most anticipated and cherished whiskey festival. Nestled in the heart of Portland, Oregon, we bring together whiskey aficionados, budding enthusiasts, and those curious to explore the depth and breadth of this time-honored beverage.

At WhiskeyFestNW, we believe that whiskey is not just a drink; it’s an experience steeped in rich history and traditions. From smoky peat-infused Scotch to smooth and velvety Bourbon, from the sweetness of Irish whiskey to the complexity of Canadian Rye, our festival is a tour-de-force of all things whiskey.

Our event is more than just tasting the finest whiskeys from around the world. It’s about providing an immersive experience. Step into our Whiskey School to learn the art and science behind whiskey making, hear captivating stories from master distillers, and understand what makes a truly great whiskey.

But WhiskeyFestNW is not all serious whiskey business. We know how to have fun too! Indulge in our selection of gourmet food trucks, get your feet tapping with live music performances, and participate in our highly anticipated cocktail competition, where mixologists from across the region showcase their innovative whiskey-based creations.

WhiskeyFestNW is also about community. Each year, we partner with local charities to give back to the wonderful city that hosts us. Because we believe that a community that drinks together, thrives together!

So whether you’re a whiskey connoisseur, an experimental cocktail lover, or someone looking to explore the fascinating world of whiskey, WhiskeyFestNW has something for you.

Raise a glass, savor the moment, and let the amber liquid unfold tales of grains, oak, time, and tradition. Welcome to WhiskeyFestNW – where every sip is worth it!
