FEST—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.
