The Oregon Truffle Festival returns in early 2018 with two truffle-packed weekends: the Eugene and Surrounds Weekend, from January 25 through 28, and the James Beard Weekend in Yamhill Valley, taking place February 16 through 18. Tickets are now on sale for à la carte events and full weekend immersions, featuring top chefs and special guests, decadent dinners and luncheons at award-winning wineries, foraging with truffle hunters and their dogs, hands-on cooking classes, and much more. 

The Eugene and Surrounds Weekend kicks off with the Fourth Annual Joriad™ North American Truffle Dog Championship on January 25 at Lane County Fairgrounds Livestock Arena, wherein spectators cheer for teams of truffle dogs and their trainers as they race to search for hidden truffle-scented targets. The Joriad™ begins in the morning with a series of qualifying events where spectators can cheer-on the teams as they race to search for hidden truffle-scented targets.
