Your support for independent local news is important.

The Source Weekly has been Central Oregon’s locally owned news outlet for over 23 years. We have always been the definition of "support local." Our success in navigating this new world is tied to the success we experience in pulling together for the common good.

Quality local journalism takes a group of dedicated reporters passionate about democracy and open government. This story is the result of our hard work, and in normal times, the result of the support of the advertisers in Central Oregon. In the age of COVID-19, however, that support has taken a hit—but that’s where you come in.

Headed to First Friday in downtown Bend? Here's what to put on your radar.

  • Downtown Bend



Some of the finest snapshots of the Northwest and all over the globe will be featured in this gallery. Peter McCracken uses photography to escape into the world and his photos capture an intense amount of beauty. Plus, it might even feel like you're taking your own trip around the globe viewing McCracken's works. 5-9pm. Stellar Realty Northwest, 109 NW Greenwood Ave.



Randy Jones, aka Jonezy Artwork, once told the now-defunct Salem Weekly that he listened to hip-hop music during every single painting he creates. Jones creates abstract and realism paintings, taking inspiration from a variety of places and styles. This is a unique gallery that you won't soon forget. This comes paired with a Double Mountain tap takeover and tasting that's sure to be delicious. Velvet, 805 NW Wall St., Bend.



Wabi Sabi is departing from its Wall Street location. To send things off right, they're hosting a night of music, Ramune soft drinks, sake and other imported snack samples on First Friday. There will also be a cosplay parade as you stroll through the employee art gallery in your favorite character's outfit. Wabi Sabi, 830 NW Wall St., Bend. 5:30-9pm.
