The city of Woodburn invites the greater Woodburn community to enjoy a family-friendly event in the heart of downtown Woodburn. This weekend event features live entertainment, vendors and lots of great cultural food.
The city held its first Taste of Woodburn in 2018 and it was a huge success. More than 2,000 visitors attended the event to dance, eat and enjoy the fun-filled atmosphere of downtown Woodburn.
“We are looking forward to bringing this event back to our community in 2019 and to all of those visitors who enjoyed the great tastes of Woodburn,” says Jamie Johnk, the city’s economic development director.
Meet your friends downtown, or make new ones, as the community comes together to enjoy the best that Woodburn has to offer.
THE FOOD: Pick up a Passport and learn about the different regions of Mexico represented by restaurants in the downtown core.
