Spring Events

 

Brunch is wildly popular in Bend year-round, but come springtime, near Easter, restaurants in the area really pull out all the stops. Many cater to this holiday weekend with brunch specials or buffets, and some even include an Easter Egg Hunt for the kiddos! Make sure you check out the options if you’re here for the holiday. Another great event in Bend this spring is the 6th Annual Bend Marathon, Half Marathon, 10k and 5k. The courses will take you through beautiful parks and pine forests, along the mighty Deschutes River, and finally, to a happening afterparty with plenty of fun, food, kombucha and craft beer! For a one-of-a-kind event celebrating freedom, check out RendezVan and hang out with an awesome community of RV owners, campers and van-lifers at Mt. Bachelor. And at the Crater Lake Spirits Downtown Tasting Room, you can attend a variety of events, such as sip-and-paint nights and a local Rescue Dog Benefit!
