The temperatures are climbing—are you already excited for your summer mountain getaway? If not, get excited with these fantastic festivals happening this summer in Bend, Oregon:
Oregon Senior Games
Looking to prove that you’re still spry and coordinated? Looking for a reason to keep pushing yourself? Look no further than the Oregon Senior Games! Hosted in Bend this year, these games include a variety of sports, from 5k and 10k to swimming to archery to pickleball to bowling. Plus, these games are qualifiers for the 2019 National Senior Games; this means it’s your chance to prove your mettle and for the crowd to see who rises to the top. And even if you’re not the most athletic, there are still awards recognizing other aspects, including miles traveled to arrive and the sportsmanship award. The games stretch from June 2nd to the 17th.
Four Peaks Music Festival
What’s summer without a major music festival to go to? Bend’s Four Peaks Music Festival scratches your itch for live music with four days of performances with a variety of genres. Two stages keep the music going all day long, while the Kidlandia activity center makes sure that the younger ones have fun too. This year, the festival is happening June 21st-24th. It’s happening at 21085 Knott Road, about 15 to 20 minutes southwest of Bend.
Bend Summer Festival
Perhaps the biggest summer festival—simply called the Bend Summer Festival—this event is an arts festival, nearing its 30th anniversary. It is far more than a gallery walk—the festival spans seven blocks and attracts over 50,000 people! You’ll see stunning creations in metal, glass, wood, and ceramics, as well as beautiful paintings, photos, and mixed media pieces. Plus, live music on three different stages accents the enjoyment of art.
The Summer Festival takes place right in downtown Bend. A kick-off concert begins the festival on Friday, July 14th, with the rest of the festival happening on the 15th.
