Win the ultimate picnic!

How to Enter:

1) Read the official contest rules.

2) Snap a picture of your Tillamook picnic (don’t worry if you don’t have a fancy camera – we’re looking for the perfect Tillamook picnic moment, not the perfect picture!).

  • Airfare to Portland, Oregon for 4
  • 2 nights stay in a hotel on the Oregon Coast
  • Rental car services

We will announce our winner August 1, 2012. Happy picnicking!

This photo was taken when we lived in Springfield, Missouri. My wife is originally from the Portland/Vancouver area, and introduced me to Tillamook Ice Cream. I was a long haul truck driver, and I was having to bootleg Tillamook Ice Cream home to get my Tillamook fix.

Hi Todd,

We got your photo through email so you are officially entered into the contest. We will announce the winner August 1st, so stay tuned. That's sure a lot of dedication to get your Tillamook Ice Cream!

It's unfortunate this is for US Residents only. I drive to the states every week so we can enjoy
your cheese in Canada too!

Tillamook Team

Hi Sharylin,

Now that is dedication! We love our Canadian fans and we’re sorry you’re unable to participate in contests at this time. I will be sure to pass your feedback along to the rest of the Tillamook team for consideration in the future. If you have a picnic photo, we’d still love to see it if you’re willing to share it with us!

If your American living abroad do you qualify? If there are two In a family instead of four can you have the 3000 in airfare to use for two instead of 4?

Tillamook Team

Hi Mike,

There's nothing in the official rules that would prevent you from entering the contest because you live abroad. You should enter! If you end up being a winner, all the other details can get worked out that time. Good luck!

What If We Live In Portland, OR. Do we need the flight tickets.

July 17th, 2012 at 9:32 pm


Tillamook Team

Hi Mimi,

If you live in Portland, OR, a flight would probably not be necessary to get you to the Oregon Coast. In that case, travel would most likely be done by car. These are details that will be worked out once a winner is picked, so make sure to enter before 7/31!

I don't have access to a camera at this time. but could write a great post about a tillamook picnic we had. I am a single mom living on SSDI so the trip would be a huge blessing for us. :)

Tillamook Team

Hi Kimber,

Thanks for leaving a comment here on the blog! I wish we could accept entries without a picture, but the Picnic Photo Contest is very specific to sending in a photo. However, have lots of other contests and offers throughout the year that don’t require sending a picture as part of the entry process! The best way to stay informed is to sign up for Tillamook Email. Then you’ll be the first to know about special offers, recipes, and other cheesy news. You can sign up here.

If you already live in Oregon, do you get something instead of the plane ticket money? Do you get an airline voucher? Or do you miss out on the air fare part of the contest?

Everything taste better with tillamook cheese my favorite is white cheese: Pepper Jack & Swiss.

The pictures of oregon are beautiful.

I really wish I could enter this contest, but the closest store that sells Tillamook products is over 50 miles away. I'm originally from Oregon, so I LOVE and miss Tillamook cheese and ice cream now that I'm all the way up in Bangor, Maine.

Teri Garcia

I will try your cheese next time I go shopping. I have wanted to try it for so long. Don't have a picture. No camera. good to hear from you guys.

July 27th, 2012 at 10:04 am


Where can we view all the photos submitted. So far I have only seen two.

Angela Lacey

Today I learned of your contest and would like to send you a big THANK YOU for getting us outside into the yard for a lovely picnic with our three little ones. Those moments are special and to have captured their sweet faces in a picture makes it more memorable. There is not always time in a busy days to include a picnic, but Tillamook Cheese reminded us that it really can be pretty simple... and not to mention they enjoyed their favorite food "cheese". I posted their 3 sweet faces on your FaceBook Wall. Thanks again =)

Tillamook Team

Lee, good question! If you already live in Oregon than airfare might not be necessary. Prizes aren't redeemable for cash, but we'll work with the winner on transportation details to make sure they can get to the necessary places and still have a great time at the Oregon Coast.

Angela, Pepper Jack and Swiss are good ones! They sure make yummy sandwiches!

Mae, Oregon is beautiful! There's no place quite like the Oregon Coast.

Rachel, if you have any Tillamook inspired picnic photos we'd still love to see them! I can't imagine moving that far away from Tillamook! Hopefully you can make it back here sometime soon!

Teri, that's wonderful! What flavor are you going to get? Let us know how it goes!

Susan, you actually can't see all of the submissions. We're holding on to them until the contest is over. However, if you go to our Facebook page you can see some of the submission there. We are announcing the winner on August 1st and will share the winning photo and maybe some runners up at that time.

Hi Angela,

That's so sweet. I am glad this contest gave you and your family a chance to stop and enjoy the yard and some Tillamook Cheese! Those moments are very important (especially when a picnic and Tillamook are involved)! Thanks for the submission.

Laura. We have had so much fun with this contest we can't decide which photo to enter. Would it be acceptable to enter a collage of our photos? Or does "one photo" mean 1 pose/photo? Let us know as soon as you can. We love Tillamook and we love OR!! :D

July 31st, 2012 at 7:44 am


do you have to submit by doing all four? Submit your entry by:

1- Emailing your picture to
2-Posting your picture on the Tillamook Cheese Facebook wall
3- Tweeting @TillamookCheese with the hashtag #PicnicPic
4- Pinning your pic to Pinterest and tagging Tillamook in your description
or can you submit through just one of the above ways?

July 31st, 2012 at 9:07 am


I posted a pic on Twitter of a puppy in Michigan that patiently waited under our picnic table for some scraps. Good memories!

Tillamook Team

Hi Jen,

I hope I am not too late for you and you submitted as many photos as you wanted! We definitely would love to see them all! What's not to like about picnic photos (especially when they involve Tillamook)? :)

August 1st, 2012 at 9:33 am


Tillamook Team

Hi Tami,

You only need to submit through one of the ways above. We we're just trying to give our fans different options since some people are not involved in all of them! Hope that you got a photo in!

Puppy + picnic + Tillamook = the perfect combination. I want to go to that picnic! Thanks for the submission!
