NW VEG Holiday Cookie Exchange

December 7 (1:00 - 4:00 PM)

It's that time of the year! Dust off those vegan cookbooks or take this opportunity to veganize ole Granny's favorite and join us at South Waterfront in the John Ross Condominiums (Amenities Room 2nd floor) located at 3601 SW River Parkway in Portland to create an inviting and decadent Vegan Holiday Cookie Platter for your upcoming holiday celebrations. Bring about 2 dozen of your favorite vegan holiday cookies (or other goodies) along with half a dozen or so to sample out and go home with approximately 2 dozen of assorted delicious, homemade treats. Please bring a card listing the ingredients and if you feel like sharing, the recipe too!

Our wonderful volunteer Sharon will be hosting this great event in the John Ross amenity room which has a full kitchen with oven and microwave, huge flat panel TV, great open space to sit or mingle and a beautiful outdoor garden area. We will have some fun playing, noshing on cookies and Sharon will have some of her favorite sugar cookie cutouts and all the decorations for you to let your inner Santa out and create your very own decorated sugar cookies to take home with you. This is a kid friendly, family event! There will be lots Pumpkin Chai, hot tea and coffee. Feel free to bring a snack and your favorite bubbles, juice or coffee liqueur.

The John Ross Condominiums is in the elliptical building (3601 SW River Parkway) at the corner of Gaines and River Parkway. It is short walk away from the OHSU tram (which the NS streetcar goes to) and there is street metered parking nearby.
