What we're all about...

Forest Grove UnCorked! is a 501(c)3 that benefits local public safety and veteran charities.

"The mission of Forest Grove UnCorked is to create an annual event that promotes and celebrates the wine, food, spirit, and micro-brew providers of Forest Grove, Washington County, and the Northern Willamette Valley.  In addition to promoting the city of Forest Grove, local vendors, and Oregon wineries and breweries, the event is also designed to raise money for local public safety and veteran organizations by providing a relaxing, safe, and comfortable adult environment in which to enjoy the food, drinks, and live music."

TEAM

We would be in a world of hurt without our volunteers.  We have some that have been with us for all 13 years!  And while it takes many, many volunteers to hold our event, here is the team that works tirelessly through out the year to make it run!
