The annual Bite of Bend is back again this weekend, June 26th and 27th, and it’s taking place in downtown Bend from 11am to 10pm on Saturday, and 11 to 7 on Sunday.
The Sterling Savings Bank Bite of Bend, held on June 26th & 27th in Downtown Bend, is Central Oregon’s most exciting and fastest-growing charity event and festival. This event is free to the public and includes a wide array of activities such as the live Top Chef competition, performance stage, beer garden, fine food and wine, the 2nd Annual Beer Run, as well as a children’s area; not to mention local food booths offering “bites” of their locally created provisions.
The mission of The Sterling Savings Bank Bite of Bend is to celebrate our local culture and create an event that highlights the foods of our region. The Oregon Marketplace showcases Oregon Wines and Liquors. The majority of our entertainment is also local. In this way, businesses that support our event benefit from the network of goodwill associated with The Bite of Bend.
Lots of food, live music, and things to see—and there is also a “Bend Beer Run” (I don’t know if this took place last year) that looks interesting:
What goes better with a hot and sweaty three mile run, than three ice cold delicious Cascade Lakes beers? Don’t miss an opportunity to run off those beer calories before they even have a chance to soak in. Join us for the 2nd Annual Bend Beer Run. The run is a 3 mile course through Downtown Bend and Drake Park. The finish is the Sterling Savings Bank Bite of Bend Festival.
If you want to participate in that, the cost is $25.
