Eugene, OR

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.

Other events include a truffle cooking class, the MacDown (where chefs elevate comfort foods using Oregon truffles), a Grand Truffle Dinner, the 2-Day Truffle Growers’ Forum (an annual gathering of international speakers and growers to discuss the latest advances in truffle science), and the Eugene Fresh Truffle Marketplace (a unique tasting and demo experience with regional wines, artisan foods, and craft products related to the Oregon truffle industry).
