Bend at Christmastime is the closest thing to magic that any of us will ever experience. The only thing you can do is come and see it for yourself! Immerse yourself in the beauty of winter in one of the loveliest cities. Here are a few of the things we’re most excited about for Bend Christmas 2019:

Holiday Marketplace

Take a little trip to Sunriver on November 24th and 25th to get some Christmas shopping in. Here you’ll find locally handcrafted goods and art, from handmade soap to lovely metalwork to fine jewelry. This event is in its 16th annual run and it gets bigger every year! Find it at the Great Hall at Sunriver Resort.

Community Bend Christmas Tree Lighting

Come for the whole month of December and kick off your Christmas season with this community tree lighting ceremony (lit by Santa himself) on December 6th. This annual celebration really brings us all together, and it’s the perfect way to begin your Christmas in Bend. Join the choir and the crowd in the singing of all our favorite Christmas carols.

A Tower Christmas: Swing Into the Holidays

This is a holiday tradition that we all look forward to each year. “Swing Into the Holidays” is this year’s theme, so you can only guess what kind of lively and fun holiday music this 18-piece band will feature! This family-friendly event takes place on December 20th – 23rd, so it makes a great leadup into the main event: a magical Christmas Eve and Christmas Day in Bend.

Christmas in Bend, Oregon

Mt. Bachelor is open on Bend Christmas Day, which means that this Christmas can be a time of adventure! Sleep in and make yourselves some nice hot coffee in your rental home, then head out and hit the slopes together for a white Christmas you’ll never forget. Go skiing, go snowboarding, do whatever your heart desires!

Spend the afternoon visiting Bend Whitewater Park for a winter scene that feels like an oil painting. Explore downtown Bend for a taste of Christmas magic courtesy of the twinkling lights and the lightly fallen snow. Even if no fresh snow falls in Bend on Christmas Day, you never have to drive far to find it! Try the nearby Wanoga Sno-Park—just remember to bring your sleds and your sense of fun.
