Today's the day, it's officially the first day of Fall. Summer is behind us, we have a few weeks to enjoy the calm of Fall before the Winter tourist season kicks off. There is so much to enjoy about fall, the beautiful trees that line Downtown turn gold and auburn as winter nears, hot pumpkin coffee makes its return and you can never forget about the pumpkin patch!
As we settle into fall, its time to find that winter go spot for coffee, we have a plethora of local coffee shops to choose from in Downtown. If you need a quick pick-me with a great view of the river we recommend Looney Bean, if you are staying in the Oxford, and about to start your day on the town, head right across the street to Thump Coffee. Or maybe you've been cruising around downtown shopping and need a great place to relax and chat swing by Back Porch Coffee Roasters.
In Downtown Bend we always have something fun to do, from live music, sales, and special events you can find everything you need to know below, or on our Facebook page and website.
Discover Downtown Bend
Constructed in May 1901, the Pilot Butte Development Company's little plant was the first commercial sawmill in Bend. By 1903 a small community had developed, with Downtown Bend touting a Post Office, Bank, shops and an Inn - and a town was born, our downtown, Downtown Bend. In 1904, a city was incorporated by a general vote of the community's 300 residents. On January 4, 1905, the city held its first official meeting as an incorporated municipality, appointing A. H. Goodwillie as the first mayor. The settlement was originally called "Farewell Bend", which was later shortened to "Bend" by the U.S. Postal Service.
