As fall gracefully eases its way onto the scene and provides a time to harvest and give thanks, it’s the perfect time to enjoy a community gathering. The Bend Fall Festival, presented by The Source Weekly brings a celebration of all things fall to downtown Bend. Celebrating the end of summer season and the beginning of harvest and autumn, the festival has become iconic for Central Oregonians to do their holiday shopping amongst the many original artisans and crafters at the event. Fall-themed activities include contests, music, art, and food that will thrill attendees of all ages, such as free concerts on two stages, fine artist promenade, conscious living showcase, COPA kids zone, harvest market, pumpkin pie baking contest, pumpkin carving contest & over 30 food vendors. Prepare to have your appetite whetted by the crispness of the season and an outstanding collection of vendors, and maybe even do a little early holiday shopping in the most unique marketplace in Central Oregon.
