Kenny & Zuke’s 2nd Annual Picklefest

PORTLAND, Ore. (May 8, 2012) – Last year Kenny & Zuke’s hosted an old fashioned pickle throwdown, but this year the event has grown into a full on festival. The new Picklefest celebrates all things pickled along with the unique and vibrant food culture in Portland on July 21 from noon until 6 p.m. Kenny & Zuke’s will take over beautiful Wallace Park in Northwest Portland, where attendees can spread out on the grass as they taste dozens of uniquely pickled foods from restaurants and professional pickle makers all over the Portland area and then vote for their favorite. The all day tasting event includes voting for “People’s Favorite Awards” and “Judge’s Favorite Awards” in each category and will feature a celebrity panel of judges. Portland’s top restaurants will submit their finest pickles in four categories- Classic Cucumber, Sweet Pickles, Not Involving a Cucumber and Portland Weird. The event is free to attend and $7 to taste all the pickled goods. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to a local food charity. Guests can also pair their pickle samples with barbecue, Kenny & Zuke’s world famous pastrami and various beverages for all ages, all of which will be sold at the event. For more information visit,
