About: Bounty of Yamhill CountyVoted #2 Best General Food Festival, as chosen by readers of USA TODAY and 10Best
Yamhill County, nestled in the heart of Oregon’s Willamette Valley, enjoys rich soils, a mild climate and some of the most spectacular scenery anywhere. This abundance of natural resources – and a strong pioneer spirit – has attracted innovative vintners, agricultural trailblazers, and some of the best chefs in the country.
The result is a delicious trifecta of 21st century visionaries primed to deliver innovative farm-to-fork plates, perfectly paired with unparalleled wines.
Bounty of Yamhill County (BOYC) is a three-day annual event that celebrates this vibrant community of famous wineries, celebrated chefs, and sustainable family farms. No other locally sourced food and wine event can boast such nationally recognized participants.
Last year, Bounty of Yamhill County placed #2 in USA TODAY 10Best Readers’ Choice Award for Best General Food Festival.
And things keep getting better! Embracing our new mantra “Culinary Adventures in Oregon Wine Country” we’ve added new events to the weekend, including hiking, hot air ballooning, cycling and horse back riding – topped off with delicious food and wine, of course.
In its fifth year, BOYC is a project of the Yamhill Enrichment Society (YES) – a local non-profit that supports important projects in education & the arts, food & agriculture, and history & community.
In addition to raising funds for important YES projects, Bounty of Yamhill County presents an important opportunity to draw national and international attention to our unique and dynamic culinary scene.
