TASTE News Service, January 14, 2020 — February is for Foodies is once again set to showcase what so many who love Walla Walla already know:

Fresh farm-to-table fare, creative chefs, and the marriage of food and wine are the backbone of a vibrant culinary scene that is woven into the region's cultural fabric.

February is for Foodies will return to Walla Walla for an eighth consecutive year. A highlight of the Winter WallaLand celebration, the annual tradition offers a month filled with foodie-friendly events meant to entice those from both near and far to come and immerse themselves in the innovative culinary scene that has helped shape Walla Walla into the gem of Washington wine country.

Like a fine Walla Walla wine, February is for Foodies has improved with age, thanks in large part to a strategic partnership struck last year between Visit Walla Walla and the Walla Walla Union-Bulletin to attract participating partners and organize the month of events.

"Never has the culinary scene in Walla Walla been more appetizing than today. And that evolution is put on display perfectly during February is for Foodies," said Ron Williams, CEO of Visit Walla Walla. "With a 7-year history and through partnerships with the Union-Bulletin and others, Visit Walla Walla has helped elevate February is for Foodies into an event that is closer to its original vision than ever before."

As the centerpiece of February is for Foodies, restaurants throughout Walla Walla will feature special three-course prix-fixe dinner menus for $33, and offer two-course prix fixe lunch menus, Sunday through Thursday, for $22. In addition, every Wednesday night in February will be "family night," with custom offerings at local restaurants designed for three or more and priced per adult and per child.

The calendar will also be filled with events showcasing Walla Walla's celebrated chefs and special food, wine, and chocolate pairings, as well as special lodging discounts at some of Walla Walla's most notable hotels.

"The goal of February is for Foodies is to continually improve the offerings of the event each and every year, and so far we are well on our way to accomplishing that mission," said Brian Hunt, publisher of the Union Bulletin. "With so many outstanding restaurants, wineries, and lodging partners working together, there can be no doubt that February is for Foodies represents a unique opportunity for both locals and visitors to immerse themselves in Walla Walla's culinary scene."

Organizers are still finalizing the list of participating restaurants, wineries, lodging properties, and other businesses to both host and sponsor events. The full schedule of events will be announced soon.
