chefs' night out 2023

Monday, April 3rd

Lane Events Center
796 W. 13
th Ave, Eugene
6:30pm – 9:00pm

$85 General Admission 

$125 VIP Early Entrance (5:30pm) Only 250 available!

General Admission tickets are $85. For a special experience, purchase a VIP Early Entrance ticket for $125, which allows you to enter the event an hour earlier than General Admission ticket holders. Due to rising costs, we are raising ticket prices for the first time in many years. We look forward to delivering another great event.

Thanks to your ticket purchase and our generous sponsors, proceeds from Chefs’ Night Out go directly to our mission of creating access to food. For every dollar we raise, FOOD For Lane County can provide 3 meals! This event typically raises enough money to provide approximately 400,000 meals for our neighbors in need.

How to Buy Tickets:

If you attended last year’s Chefs’ Night Out or the Empty Bowls Auction, you will need to re-activate your Handbid account before purchasing Chefs’ Night Out tickets for 2023 (unless you’ve used the app since then). If not, please set up an account to purchase tickets.  

Download the Handbid app (at the Apple App Store or Google Play) to re-activate or set up your account for easy purchase and access to your tickets.

All ticket sales are final. Questions? Call 541-343-2822, ext. 103 or 124.

What can I expect?

A delightful evening filled with food and beverages created just for you by Lane County’s finest restaurants, caterers, wineries, breweries, and distilleries! More than 50 purveyors are offering small bites of their creations so you can attempt to try them all as you take your taste buds on this culinary adventure. You can select your favorite bite by voting for the People’s Choice award. Enjoy music from local artists as well. All on one level, the spacious Lane Events Center also provides free parking.

COVID-19 Protocol: Our event is working to ensure the safety of all participants. We will follow state and local health mandates in place at the time of the event. Currently there are no mask mandates or vaccination requirements, but that is subject to change based on health and government recommendations. All ticket sales are final.
