Welcome to the Downtown Bend Newsletter, News from the ❤️️ of Bend!
Last week we announced Frist Friday Art Walk would be coming back, unfortunately, with the recent spike in Covid cases and Deschutes County moving back into high risk, we have decided to postpone First Fridays until we are at a safer risk level. We are optimistic about the future, but as we have seen it’s a bit of a roller coaster out here!
Struggling to find a great gift, we have you covered! There is still plenty of time till Mother’s Day, keep your eye’s peeled for our Mother’s Day Gift guide next week.
Have you been to one of Downtown's newest additions? The Cellar, by Porter Brewing company, out of Redmond Oregon! They proudly serve 100% cask-conditioned real ales. "Real ale", a term originally coined in the UK, is a beer that is unfiltered, unpasteurized, and goes through a secondary fermentation in the cask (similar to a keg) where it naturally self-carbonates.
We are bringing back Oktoberfest! Things will be looking a little different this year and a little bit more fun, if you are interested in participating as a sponsor, or event host, or maybe you have a couple of fun ideas up your sleeve let us know. Feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
