The Joriad™ North American Truffle Dog Championship
Thursday, January 25, 2018
Lane County Fairgrounds Large Animal Arena, Eugene, OR


Round 1 Competition: Lane County Fairgrounds Livestock Arena, Eugene
Watch and experience some of the world’s most talented truffle dogs as they compete in the 4th annual Joriad™ Truffle Dog Championship. The Joriad™ begins in the morning with a series of qualifying events where spectators can cheer-on the teams as they race to search for hidden truffle-scented targets. Finalists are announced at the end of the morning’s qualifying events.

Championship Finals: Into the Woods
The morning’s finalists will advance to the Joriad™ Field Trial the afternoon of the 25th for an authentic head-to-head and nose-to-ground action in the wild where nature alone determines location, variety, and quantity of rare Oregon truffles. Because truffle hunting in the field does not lend itself to spectator participation, this event is not open to the public, but everyone ticketed from the morning round is invited to attend the Gala Awards Ceremony in the early evening at the Hilton Eugene. oregontrufflefestival.org

A la carte events include Thursday’s Joriad™ Truffle Dog Championship, Friday’s LCC Cooking Class, the 2nd annual Oregon Truffle MacDown, Saturday’s Grand Truffle Dinner, and Sunday’s Fresh Truffle Marketplace.

As always, there will be new events, new venues, and new faces to help us celebrate Oregon truffles, culinary tradition, and the best of Oregon wine.

Our 2018 host hotel is the remodeled Hilton Eugene. The Hilton provides free shuttle service to and from all Eugene airport flights. True to the spirit of the Oregon Truffle Festival, it is a dog-friendly hotel! Most Eugene weekend events are located in and around Lane County, Oregon. oregontrufflefestival.org
