Summer Events Guide

Pack up your picnic, and pack up your calendar

Planning a great summer is not easy work.

In fact, it has taken us two complete issues to just provide listings of recommended events: Two weeks ago, we published our annual Summer Music Guide with suggestions for shows and festivals in Bend throughout the summer, and in every direction from here—in Portland, Eugene and Ashland.

But that wasn't enough. The Source is happy to present its first ever Summer Events Guide, a listing of various festivals, street fairs, bike races and beer events. Yes, it is a lot to consider and consume. To help guide you through our Guide, we have broken down the listings into five categories—food festivals, outside events, stage productions, art and street festivals and, of course, beer happenings.

And, we also take a moment to introduce you to some of the people making these events happen—the quilters for Sisters' famous festival; a paddleboard instructor; one of Bend's newest chefs, who will present her slightly exotic comfort food at Bite of Bend; and, one of the fine actors at this summer's Shakespeare in the Park festival.

Yes, there is a lot to do this summer. But don't worry. We're here to help.

Get all the details here.
