Weekend Warrior: Jan 18-20 | Advice & Fun | 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.

Friday: Margo Cilker & Field Heat w/ An American Forrest
Kickstart the weekend at Spoken Moto with a nice evening of country folk music. Trust me when I say Margo Cilker's voice and songwriting will stick with you long after the night is over! Her rustic and velvety tone is more than strong enough to carry all the emotion in Cilker's songs.  It's Free Folk Friday, baby.

Fri., Jan. 18
Spoken Moto
310 SW Industrial Way, Bend

Saturday: 6th Annual High Gravity Brew Fest
Come get a drink! The brews at High Gravity are stronger than your average beer, and all of the Pacific Northwest breweries there are going to bring it. Plus there will be music from The Cutmen and The Quick & Easy Boys. It's going to be a little too much fun.
