If you’re searching for something fun to do this weekend don’t miss the 25th anniversary of the Bank of the Bend Summer Festival, running from July 10th through July 12th in Downtown Bend, Oregon.
This event is FREE and will feature lots of fun things to see and do including 40 booths, gourmet food and wine, jazz, locally brewed beer, over 100 artists and craftsmen from Bend and the surrounding area, dances from the Warm Springs Tribal Dancers, Portland Ballet and so much more.
Bend Summer Festival Hours
The fun starts on Friday 7/10 at 5:00 pm sharp and events will resume on Saturday and Sunday at 11:00 am.
Unlike other events you may have attended in the past, this festival will have high end artwork on display and great performances from well-known artists including rap legend Sir Mix-A-Lot
Friday evening kicks off with three very distinct concerts, with Moonroom performing on the 106.7 KPOV Locals Only Stage (located in the Wells Fargo parking lot), Soul Benders on the Cascade Sotheby’s Jazz Gourmet Food and Wine Stage (located on Minnesota St) and Larry and His Flask performing on the Peak 104.1 MainStage for one of their only reunion shows (located on Oregon St).
Throughout the night, Deschutes Brewery is hosting the libations bar, offering Deschutes Brewery beer, wine, cocktails made with Bendistillery Crater Lake vodka, and Atlas Cider.
