An unforgettable culinary night awaits. In honor of the Ashland Culinary Festival, join us for a special celebratory dinner showcasing a menu by former Top Chef winners, paired with a craft cocktail from the winner of the Mixology Competition and premier Oregon wines. Enjoy a real time and virtual experience featuring video cooking demos of this year’s dishes by Top Chefs, and highlights from last year’s Ashland Culinary Festival. Let’s toast to great cuisine, drink and local culinary tradition! 

Rest assured we are following all social distancing requirements. Please review our wellbeing practices across Neuman Hotel Group. Guests will only be seated with their own party. Masks are required until safely seated and dining at your table. 

*Please note the 14th Annual Culinary Festival produced by Travel Ashland will not be happening this year. Instead our community is organizing specials at local restaurants and beyond. The Top Chefs Dinner is our way of kicking off these small celebrations and honoring the culinary tradition of Ashland.
