Events in Bend, Oregon

Rumor has it, there’s always something happening in Bend. And you know what? The rumors are true. It’s safe to say there’s always an event going on in our bustling little mountain oasis.

Events in Bend are chock full of fun, culture, action, and even delicious food and beverages. From family-friendly festivals to art walks, beer-fests, outdoor concerts, marathons, or a bike race, there’s probably an event happening that you won’t want to miss.

Family-friendly events like Oregon WinterFest, Bend Summer Festival, and Balloons Over Bend will keep the youngins entertained with kid-friendly activities and plenty of welcoming entertainment for the whole family.

For the grownups, how about sampling some of the area’s best-tasting hoppy, hazy, dark, balanced, and all-out delicious locally crafted brews. Sample your favorite beers and ciders or discover a new favorite at The Bend Brewfest or the Central Oregon Winter Beer Festival.

Got a foodie or two in the group? Be sure to check out the Bite of Bend, a three-day food party where you can taste local flavors from chefs, bartenders, brewers, and food enthusiasts from the area. Or head over to Munch and Music for a perfect blend of live music in the park paired with a few treats from some of Bend’s best food trucks.

If you’ve got a hankering for art and live music, then be sure to add Art in the High Desert, First Friday Art Walk, and a live outdoor concert at the Hayden Homes Amphitheater, where you’ll hear big names and get spectacular views of the Deschutes River and the Cascade Mountains.

Or, if you’re looking to hit the ground riding or running, there are plenty of local bike and running events. For bikers, gear up with Mudslinger events like the High Cascades 100, the Best of Both, or Ring of Fire. Runners will have fun and make miles at the Bend Marathon, Bend Beer Run, or The Dirty Half.
