The final countdown has begun and this year's Sixth Annual Portland Fermentation Festival at Ecotrust is less than a week away -- this coming Tuesday, Oct. 27th from 6-9:30pm! Purchase your tickets now ($10,$20) and you'll have a lot less of a wait on Tuesday to get in. Day of is cash only -- ATM in the building. Children 12 and under get in for free.
On the rooftop you can purchase cider from festival royalty Reverend Nat's Hard Cider, sandwiches from festival co-organizer Bingo Sandwiches, beer AND you can shake a leg to the first ever festival playlist curated by my fine fellow DJ Jimbo!
Here are the songs -- first the actual songs and then their fermenty-pun counterparts. I'd make a Spotify playlist but there are too many songs that they don't have on there to do the list justice. You'll just have to come to the festival to hear it!

This year we’re having a panel of experts kick of the fest rather than one guest speaker. The inaugural Portland Fermentation Festival was in 2009 with Sandor Ellix Katz as guest speaker and we were lucky enough to get him back to speak at the 2013 fest. Sandor is one of our heroes and favorite people so we asked him to speak again at last year's fest and this was his response:
“sorry can’t make it this year. have fun and keep me posted on future festivals. i’m heading to the boston fermentation festival next month and austin (tx) festival in november. you were the pioneer fermentation festival and they keep spreading…..”
Let’s all be super proud to be a part of “THE PIONEER FERMENTATION FESTIVAL”! We can’t wait to see you all on Tuesday at the STIIIINK!
