Indulge Your Senses at A Taste of Ashland
Spring is in full swing in Ashland, Oregon and this season brings a flurry of great events. The Oregon Chocolate Festival and the Ashland Independent Film Festival are fresh in our memories as we look forward to the next fiesta: A Taste of Ashland.
A Taste of Ashland is a two-day extravaganza of art paired with local, artisan food and beverages – wine, beer and other spirits, and a little music. It benefits the non-profit Ashland Gallery Association, which is essential in helping maintain a vibrant arts scene and supporting artists in our community.
This year the festival is held April 30-May 1. It features 17 galleries with food and beverage samples. Check out the tantalizing lineup!
Standing Stone Brewing Co always participates in this annual favorite, sharing tastes of food from our restaurant. With past culinary creations like Goat Cheese and Artichoke Fondue, and Lamb Kafta, we’re excited to see what surprises Chef Bell will whip up for this year’s presentation. We’ll be paired with Plaisance Ranch from Williams, pouring their wines to complement Standing Stone’s samples.
You can find us at Art & Soul Gallery on Main St. on Sunday, May 1st. Art & Soul Gallery exhibits the fine art of artists from Oregon and Northern California, many of them award winning. The artwork reflects a variety of mediums including watercolors, oils, pastels and mixed media for all tastes to enjoy.
The participating galleries are clustered around Ashland’s downtown core, making for a wonderful stroll to balance out all that food and drink. Check out a map. There’s also a shuttle for those who need to rest their legs. Or, stop by Standing Stone to kick back and enjoy a full meal and fresh beer in between galleries.
We encourage you to come out and indulge your senses. This event typically sells out early, so reserve your tickets today. Hope to see you there!
