2023 Bend Festival

September 29 - October 1

Join us for a weekend of fall fun at the annual Autumn Festival in downtown Bend! This beloved tradition celebrates the best of PNW culture and offers a wide range of activities for everyone to enjoy.

Browse through over 80 artisans and craftspeople showcasing their handcrafted pieces. Witness the magic as printmakers, blacksmiths, clay sculptors, chalk artists, and pumpkin painters create stunning works of art right before your eyes. Explore the beautiful textile and fabrics area, featuring handcrafted clothing, blankets, and more.

But that’s not all! The festival has planned a full weekend of entertainment and activities. Enjoy live music from various genres while you peruse the artisan booths. Indulge in the Harvest Market, filled with seasonal, local produce, PNW wines, and epicurean treats to sample. Bring the whole family to the play zone, where kids can enjoy pumpkin painting and bounce houses, and don’t miss the Kids Harvest Run on Saturday at Troy Field.

One of the highlights of this year’s festival is the Art in Action Avenue in Brooks Alley. Step into this outdoor art studio and witness artists creating stunning pieces right on the street. From printmakers to clay sculptors to local painters, you’ll be amazed by the talent on display.

We are also excited to announce the Cornhole for Kids Tourney on Saturday, benefiting the Boys & Girls Clubs of Bend. Join us for a fun-filled cornhole tournament and support a great cause.
