Do you love to celebrate the start of summer with a big street party? Then head on down to the Bend Summer Festival in downtown Bend, Oregon! Celebrate warm weather in true Oregon style with a plethora of musical acts, original crafts vendors, local food and drink, and tons of fun for the whole family!
Bend Summer Festival: The Party of the Season
As one of the best Bend Oregon festivals, this annual bash draws 75,000 people over the course of three days, and it’s no wonder, with the array of activities on offer! Check out some of the Northwest’s best blues, rock, & jazz music at free concerts taking place on three different stages. Dance the night away at the main stage on Friday and Saturday, or if you’d rather do your thing on Sunday morning, check out the Saxon’s Soul Brunch at 11 am at the main stage. Enjoy great local food and drink alongside awesome soul music; what a way to start the day! If you want an even wider variety of music, check out the Jazz, Food, & Wine Stage on Minnesota Street, and the Locals Only Stage in the Wells Fargo parking lot. So much to choose from!
Taste Oregon’s Finest
The Food Promenade, a collection of local food trucks, will be available during the entire festival in the Wells Fargo parking lot. Enjoy artisan gelato, kettle corn, noodles, and all manner of other eat-on-your-feet delights. Sample the best brews from Deschutes Brewery at one of the Libation Stations. If you’re in the mood for a more upscale flavor explosion, head down to Minnesota Street, known for this weekend as the Jazz, Food & Wine Street! Some of Oregon’s finest gourmet delectables can be found here, paired with great live jazz.
Play, Browse, and Shop
Kids will love visiting Family Fun Street (Oregon Street), where they’ll find face painting, bounce houses, a dunk tank, balloon animals, and so much more. Adults will enjoy visiting the Souk, a marketplace filled with some of Oregon’s best inventive handcrafted items. And everyone can find something to love in the Conscious Living Showcase, which will include over 50 exhibitors like health/wellness companies, alternative energy providers, and all sorts of other local businesses that promote healthy living. There’s just so much to see!
At the end of a fun day, you’ll be glad to get some rest in your comfortable Sunriver Pines vacation rental, just a short drive away from the Bend Summer Festival!
