Made in Central Oregon | Made in Central Oregon | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Made in Central Oregon

Countless cloudless days. Nights alive with abundant stars. Beautiful hiking, biking, downhill and cross-country trails. A creative, inspired, informed community...and at the end of a long day, a delicious glass of a locally-made and well-loved spirit of our choice. 

Life in Central Oregon is good, isn't it? 

We think so. While we do have to give homage to the entire state of Oregon and its many discerning, delightful denizens, there's just something special about living in the sunny central part of the state. We believe it's so special, in fact, that each year we take the time to honor the people, the places and the businesses that make our area so attractive. After all, 20,000 summer visitors each day can't be wrong, right? 

Life gets hectic and things can get tough no matter where you live – but just for a moment, we encourage you to sit down, peruse these pages, and then raise a glass to this wonderful place we like to call home. Here's to you, Central Oregon.
