Sunriver Resort, the Pacific Northwest’s treasured resort destination, located moments from Bend, Oregon, and nearby Mt. Bachelor, is thrilled to announce its inaugural Sunriver Resort Food & Wine Festival, taking place February 1 – 28, 2023. The month-long gastronomic celebration will showcase the region’s rich farming and food heritage, along with Executive Chef Josh Hedrick’s unique culinary vision, which emphasizes ingredients from the natural surroundings of Central Oregon and draws inspiration from family campfire gatherings on the frontiers of Oregon’s high desert.
