                               Marketplace Information and Application

The Bite of the Rogue Valley, held on September 11th & 12th in Hawthorne Park, Downtown
Medford, is Southern Oregon’s most exciting and fastest-growing charity event and festival. This
event includes a wide array of activities such as a performance stage, beer garden, fine food and
wine as well as a children’s area; not to mention local food booths offering “bites” of their locally
created provisions. The entrance fee is $3 and kids under 12 get in free.

The Bite of the Rogue Valley celebrates our local culture and highlights the foods of our
region. The Oregon Marketplace showcases food and farm-grown produce from Oregon. The
majority of our entertainment is also local. In this way, businesses that support our event benefit
from the network of goodwill associated with The Bite of the Rogue Valley.

Join us for The Bite of the Rogue Valley 2010 and celebrate the fabulous foods of Oregon!
We are adhering to our policy of only locally operated restaurants and there is no
exclusivity in a food category.
