Regional Salons

As part of the ongoing research and planning for our annual conference, the James Beard Foundation, in association with Karp Resources, conducts a series of regional salons around the country on various topics and themes related to the conference. A small group of diverse stakeholders in the local food system—including chefs, farmers, food producers, distributors, policy makers, urban planners, academics, and others—are invited to a casual conversation in a James Beard affiliated restaurant. Previous salons have been held in Portland, Minneapolis, Louisville, Atlanta, and New York City. 

 For information about participating in, hosting, or supporting a salon, please email us at
