—Bend loves an excuse for a street fair
and this is summer’s crown jewel. Taking over downtown with live music, artists, food, beer, kids activities and more, Bend Summer Festival
brings maximum entertainment with minimal effort. Headliners Larry and His Flask
, Patrick Lamb Band
and Boxcar Stringband
helm the fest’s three stages—main, jazz fusion and locals only. Grab an elephant ear, stroll the booths and take in some summer jams. 5-10 pm Friday, 11 am-10 pm Saturday, 11 am-5 pm Sunday. Downtown Bend. Free.
