We don't know about you, but we feel like Summer has flown by. It could be the fact that it's been an exceedingly hot summer or the fact we haven't been able to see the mountains for the last month. We are thrilled for fall, with labor day already behind us, cooler weather is ahead and school is starting back up for the kids.
Summer may be over but that doesn't mean the fun is! With fun activities happening all over downtown, there is always something to do! You can regularly catch live music at some of our favorite breweries like Bend Brewing Company, or Silvermoon. Want to be a part of the show, cruise over to The Commons for open mic nights or Corey's for Karaoke. Need a new hobby, stop by Wool Town for a beginners knitting class.

Comedy for a Cause presents Bob Saget at the Tower Theatre
Yes, Bob Saget has starred in many successful television shows, including two of the most family-friendly shows network TV has ever produced (“Full House” and “Americas Funniest Home Videos”) but he’s also an out-of-his-mind, Grammy-nominated standup comedian for over thirty years. From his latest Amazon special, “Zero to Sixty,” to his HBO special, “That Ain’t Right” to his scene-stealing cameos in “Entourage,” and “The Aristocrats,” it’s always effective as Saget embraces his mischievous side. September 19th at 7:30pm, get tickets here

Discover your Town | The origin of the town's namesake
The name Bend was derived from "Farewell Bend", the designation used by early pioneers to refer to the location along the Deschutes River where the town was eventually platted, one of the few fordable points along the river.
Until the winter of 1824, the Bend area was known only to Native Americans who hunted and fished there. Then pioneers heading farther west passed through the area and forded the Deschutes River at Farewell Bend.
