This is the main event of Chicory Week! Join radicchio experts, farmers, and chefs for a taste of local chicories in classic and modern dishes. Inside the beautiful Palace Ballroom, you’ll find a radicchio raw bar, Italian wines and amari, fine specimens of vegetables, and lots of delicious chicory dish samples from local and visiting chefs. Talk to the pros about how to grow, eat, and/or prepare chicories, check out sagra-inspired artwork and fine foods, and enjoy the splendor of our favorite winter crop!

What is Chicory Week? We are an organized group of farmers, food lovers, restaurateurs, and vegetable enthusiasts. For one week each year, we promote the heck out of radicchio and its place in the PNW food scene. Our goal is to increase radicchio consumption, production, and enjoyment by sharing our passion with others. Though our focus is only one week, we live to celebrate radicchio whenever it is in season, and we support growers of other amazing local produce at all times. You can participate by supporting your local foodshed and buying radicchio and other vegetables at farmers markets and local farms. Learn more at chicoryweek.com.
