A very popular annual event in Portland has been canceled.

Bite of Oregon organizers say they are taking a break for 2018 but could return in the future.

The annual showcase of food, beer and wine is put on by Special Olympics Oregon as one of its main fundraisers.

In recent years, however, organizers say they have seen a significant increase in costs needed to host the event.

Special Olympics Oregon, a nonprofit, has struggled financially, and just last week announced that competitions for the upcoming fall and winter seasons have been canceled.

Organizers have not said when Bite of Oregon or Special Olympic games might return.
