The First-Ever Tater Tot Festival Celebrates The Terrific Tuber And Its Oregon Roots

In Oregon, tater tots are our potato preference. These petite, poppable puffs of potato perfection were in fact invented in Oregon in the 1950s, and there is a lot of state pride surrounding this feat! So much pride that for the first time ever, there will be an entire festival honoring the tater tot. Mark your calendars: the inaugural Tater Tot Festival is happening in Ontario, Oregon on Sept. 17-18, 2021 and it’s really a must for anyone who’s hot for tots.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

How do you prefer your potatoes? Straight-up, in french-fry form, or tot-style? Whatever your fancy, the Tater Tot Festival will undoubtedly be a lot of fun! Stay up-to-date on the latest updates for this year’s festival on the event’s Facebook page.

Tater tots aren’t Oregon’s only notable culinary contribution; the marionberry was invented here, too!
