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.

Out of Town



wednesday 28- sunday 2 Holiday Ale Festival

The Northwest's only outdoor winter beer festival, this beer bash will have all the holiday essentials: Christmas trees, music, food and, most importantly, a whole lot of alcohol. Despite the rain and cold that makes up most of Portland's winter months, attendees will be drinking under a large clear tent, which affords views of the city lights from Pioneer Square. Gas heaters will keep folks toasty as they sample some of the best seasonal brews from all around the Northwest. More than fifteen limited release aged beers will also be offered from Deschutes, Dog Fish Head, Alaskan Brewing Company, Kona and more. Pioneer Courthouse Square.

wednesday 5 The Moondoggies and The Maldives

Two of Seattle's best alternative rock and rollers team up in Portland. The Maldives play revival alt-folk rock with a country twang. They consistently sell out venues like the Tractor Tavern for multiple nights in their hometown, and released their fourth full-length album, Muscle for the Wing, in October. The Moondoggies are a roots-rock group that injects Pacific Northwest indie style into their heavy harmonies and drawling guitar. 8 p.m. Mississippi Studios.


tuesday 4 Deck The Hall Ball

107.7 The End's annual Deck the Hall Ball will bring together some of the most popular electro-rock acts of the last year, including The Killers, M83, Metric, Awolnation, Group Love and Passion Pit. The holiday-themed bash is a mini-festival hosting some less plugged in acts, on top of the previously mentioned bumping dance party, like The Lumineers ("Ho Hey"), Of Monsters and Men ("Little Talks") and the Joy Formidable ("Whirring"). You'll know at least one overplayed radio hit from each band. 2 p.m. Key Arena.

wednesday 5 Miranda July

Miranda July, writer and star of the independent film Me and You and Everyone We Know tells the story of her career thus far in a multimedia presentation. July is a jack-of-all-trades boasting a resume that spans from author of fiction and screenplays, to producer, actor, director, performance artist and musician. Essentially, she rocks at everything artsy and will blow your mind with her loopy surrealist performance. 7:30 p.m. Seattle Arts and Lectures.
