Hard to believe, but it’s the Bend Summer Fest already—this weekend, Saturday and Sunday the 12th and 13th. For me it’s the best of the "seasonal festivals" and one I enjoy visiting each year.
It is of course held in Downtown Bend, and the following streets are closed: Wall Street between Franklin and Greenwood; Oregon and Minnesota Avenues from Bond westward.
There’s artists booths, a kids area, food, beer and wine, and free music on four separate stages. Including—if you can believe it—the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies on the Main Stage at 8:30 Saturday night. For free.
Times are 11-10 Saturday, 11-6 Sunday. Be there!
