Chefs’ Night Out


For over 20 years, Marion Polk Food Share has celebrated the start of the fall season by hosting our annual Chefs’ Night Out event. Voted one of the Best Events in the Mid-Valley, Chefs’ Night Out is renowned as an exquisite evening of fine food, wine, beverages, and desserts.

Each year, over 50 food and beverage purveyors from in and around the Mid-Willamette Valley participate in the event, donating 100% of their talent, time and product.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to change our daily lives, the future has never felt so unpredictable. We know this is especially true for our Chefs’ Night Out Partners.

This year, instead of asking our partners to support us, we are asking for the community’s help to support them. Throughout the month of October, we invite you to share the ways you’re supporting our Chefs’ Night Out partners for a chance to win a grand prize package worth more than $250!

Things are tough for our Chefs’ Night Out Partners right now. This is our way of sparking some fun and giving back with prizes thanks to our awesome sponsors Bonaventure Senior Living, Grove Mueller & Swank PC and Capitol Auto Group.

Grand Prize Package Includes:

Basket worth more than $250 of product from a variety of Chefs’ Night Out Partners including, sauces, chocolate, wine, cheese, bread as well as gift certificates to visit on your own. Grand Prize winner will be determined by random drawing Monday, November 2.

We’ll also have weekly winners. Each weekly winner will receive a $25 gift card to the Chefs’ Night Out Partner of their choosing and (2) Chefs’ Night Out Commemorative Wine Glasses. Weekly winners will be selected from Facebook and Instagram at random on the following dates:

• Monday, Oct. 5

• Monday, Oct. 12

• Monday, Oct. 19

• Monday, Oct. 26

• Monday, Nov. 2 – Grand Prize drawing

How to Enter:

Visit any Chefs’ Night Out Partner between Oct. 1 – Oct. 31, snap a picture of your visit and post it on either Facebook or Instagram. You must tag @marionpolkfoodshare, the partner you visit AND use #chefsnighttogo for your entry to be counted.
