Welcome to Forest Grove

Nestled in a verdant glade in northwest Oregon, where the fertile Willamette Valley meets lush forests at the base of the Coast Range, Forest Grove is a vibrant small town with a unique mix of amenities. While the city’s enviable proximity to the Oregon Coast, Portland and Mount Hood Recreation Area is certainly one advantage of its location, Forest Grove’s growing claim to fame can be found right at its doorstep: specialty farms and orchards, artisan food makers, wineries, craft breweries (beer, hard cider, sake), unique restaurants, and much more.

With a strong legacy of agriculture and food processing, the city has emerged as a hub to bring together the best of local farms, food and drink. Whether you are an avid locavore, a wine/beer/spirit enthusiast, or simply looking for a special culinary adventure, Forest Grove serves it up on a platter – with weekly farmers’ markets (May-Oct.), a broad menu of unique foodie events such as the annual Forest Grove Uncorked…even monthly hands-on cooking lessons featuring our local bounty. Alternatively, you can choose from the “à la carte menu” and visit individual farms and wineries via organized winery tours or on your own schedule, using the resources found throughout this website and available at the Forest Grove –Cornelius Chamber of Commerce, 2417 Pacific Ave. We even have a wonderful urban farm and learning center – Nana Cardoon!

If you are hungry for more, feel free to pack up some of these gastronomic treats for a stroll through the city’s historic downtown, birding at Fernhill reservoir, boating at Hagg Lake, and biking on nearby scenic trails. Take in a Pacific University musical event, a barbershop ballad competition or an antique/collectors’ car show. Bring the kids to a medieval fair, sidewalk chalk art festival or strawberry festival. There’s even something for Fido: Canines Uncorked, with tastings and dog activities at 13 wineries.

Experience the many sights, sounds and flavors of an Oregon epicurean mecca…come savor Forest Grove.
