WHAT IS TENTH MONTH?
Tenth Month is a month-long festival of brave ideas in art, film, tech, and business, celebrating the creative energy of Bend. Participants are encouraged to build and share their own itineraries with October events, urban adventures, and outdoor escapes.

Visit Bend has designated October as a creative ideas month, highlighting the creative, innovative and entrepreneurial programming in Bend. The BendFilm Festival, Bend Venture Conference, and Swivel have hosted their annual events in the month of October for numerous years. With the addition of the Bend Design Conference, the month of October is the perfect time to celebrate the spirit of innovation, cultural offerings, and creative excellence here in Bend.

The objective of Tenth Month is to attract other local organizations to host their events during the month of October and entice tourism visits from outside of a 50-mile radius.

HOW IS TENTH MONTH BEING PROMOTED?
An extensive digital marketing & media plan is in place to promote the month in Bend. Portland, Seattle & San Francisco are the targeted metro areas. Promotions include digital banner ads, PR, Pandora radio ads, paid social media campaigns, and content marketing.
